Carolina Day School | Share the Promise

Share the Promise is one evening comprised of a Promise Party community celebration and many fun, intimate dinners hosted by CDS families and friends across Asheville. The singular purpose of this event is to support need-based tuition assistance at Carolina Day School. 

A strong tuition assistance program ensures that children in the CDS and greater Asheville and Buncombe County communities who are dynamic matches to our program have access to the excellence of a CDS education regardless of financial means—strengthening the community and our school.
