Student Ambassadors

Meet our Upper School student ambassadors! These students were selected on the basis of leadership and community spirit to serve as campus tour guides for prospective students and parents. We asked each of them to tell us why they love CDS, and captured their answers in the video clips below. We hope you enjoy learning about our community and culture through their words.

Ask Me About: Soccer, Key School, and the CDS atmosphere 

"I have been at Carolina Day since I was in Pre-K. I thought it would be a good idea to change things up a little and switch to a larger public school for my freshman year, but I quickly realized that Carolina Day was an atmosphere I never wanted to leave. I returned my sophomore year and have never felt more welcomed. Upon my return, I have become president of a club, played varsity soccer and field hockey, and challenged myself academically."

Margaret '18

Ask Me About: Cross Country, Track, Lower and Middle School 
"CDS teachers are always available to help you with whatever you need. In class, they will answer any questions you have and try to explain things in a different way if you don't understand. Out of class they will help you during tutorial or before school with anything you have questions about. All of the teachers care about you and your success."

Elizabeth '17

Kathleen '18

"I love Carolina Day because I have the freedom to be myself. I don't feel I have to fit in any sort of group or stereotype. In fact, I won't try to fit in because my school has taught me the importance of sticking to my values. I love Carolina Day because I am celebrated for being my own person."

Eva '17

Ask Me About: Theatre, AP English classes, Swim Team, Honor Council/Code
"Part of what I love most at Carolina Day is all the opportunities that are presented to try new things; whether it be a sport, a club, or running for student government, everyone is given equal opportunity. It's hard to go to Carolina Day and not get yourself involved in sports or theatre or clubs, even if you never thought you would set foot on a stage in your entire life."

Bella '18

“I chose Carolina Day School because I value the close student teacher relationships and how they are dedicated to preparing you to thrive wherever your educational endeavors take you next. I love that the honor code establishes honesty, trust in the student body, and that it serves as a building block of mutual respect in the community between students and adults.”

Carson '18

Ask Me About: Study Support, Yearbook, Ap English, Theatre, Spanish, Student/Teacher Relationships, Volleyball, Soccer
"Carolina Day School is more than just a regular college preparatory school. We learn about the regular core subjects but we are also put invited into an environment that lets us learn about ourselves and the world around us. The supportive community extends past just the faculty and personally, makes me feel like more than just a number in a grade book. CDS has given me tools that I can use beyond the classroom and take with me even after I leave this community."

Royster '18

"Going to school with people and teachers who respect and love knowledge allows for me to fully submerse myself in what I am learning and to obtain a deeper understanding of the material."
