A Warm Wildcat Welcome!

It only took a few days on Carolina Day School's campus to consider myself a Wildcat! I now find myself sharing my enthusiasm with friends, family and complete strangers! I couldn't have had a warmer welcome from Lynne Pennington, Michelle Nailen, Carole Hilderbran and Trip Cogburn and I want to thank everyone who smoothed my transition from New York City to Asheville.
I look forward to meeting more of my fellow Wildcats soon!

A Family-friendly Admission Process

Now that everyone has started to settle into the 2015-16 school year, the Admission Office is ready to start the 2016-17 admission season! And we want to announce some exciting changes the Admission Team has put in place to make our process even more accessible and informative:
