Carolina Day School | Share the Promise

Share the Promise is one evening featuring a Promise Party reception celebration and fun community dinners hosted by CDS families and friends in their homes. The singular purpose of this event is to support need-based tuition assistance at Carolina Day School.

A strong need-based tuition assistance program ensures that top students within the CDS community and in the region have access to the excellence of a CDS education regardless of financial means. The talents of these students enrich and strengthen the learning experience for all students in every classroom.
