Why Carolina Day?

Kirk Duncan, Head of School


As head of school, parent, and former teacher, I know from experience the importance of a solid curriculum that prepares students to take the responsibility and initiative to design their own futures.

Here at Carolina Day School, the only National Association of Independent Schools member, accredited Pre-K/12 independent day school in Asheville, we take this very seriously. And right now, as a result of our comprehensive Strategic Plan, Carolina Day School is in the midst of an exciting era of growth and development.

We hope our website will inspire you to visit campus and begin a conversation with us about your student. We look forward to giving you an “inside the classroom” look at our small class sizes, wide range of programs, passionate teachers, and engaged and curious students.

Warm Regards,



Kirk Duncan

Head of School

Wildcat Since 2014



"I am honored and pleased to welcome you to the beginning of an enriching educational experience for your child."
