From the Head of School Today's students are preparing for a future that has not yet been defined. While the answer may still be derived from a book, Carolina Day School students understand that posing the right question may be more important than simply finding the answer. Today's learning experience is about students feeling alive with curiosity, with the knowledge that making mistakes actually helps everyone learn. It's about being challenged to stretch beyond what you thought you were capable of. It's about having empathy for others and feeling seen and respected as an individual, knowing there are peers and mentors to support and encourage you. It's about belonging. At Carolina Day, we prepare our students for an ambitious, purpose- driven life, well past their time here on campus—for a future world with jobs, careers, and challenges that are being developed even as they learn. The entire campus is a classroom, allowing every space to be an opportunity for growth, collaboration, and discovery, and often leads to learning and exploration that extends beyond our campus. There are many ways to explore Carolina Day, but we hope that you will come to campus for an up close and personal visit. You will be able to see our school in action, and meet our dedicated and talented teachers and the bright, curious, and amazing students who fill their classrooms. We look forward to sharing all that is special about the Carolina Day School community with you. – Stephanie Whitney, Head of School t Carolina Day School, we understand that a student's success depends mostly on the student. It's our responsibility to learn about each student, so we can guide them through a learning experience that engages them and supports them. It's not enough to espouse academic excellence. We must empower it in each student individually. We will push them to succeed, but we really want them to push themselves. That's what we call education empowered. A How students learn is just as important as what students learn.
