to help the child be empowered

why schools exist

the charge to every school:

help all the students learn to know themselves, 
to accept themselves, 
to like themselves,

help all the students learn to empathize, 
to learn to know others, 
to expand the sense of self, 
and connect,

through all the work as to self and skill, 
help all students to be empowered, 
to feel and wield the power that should be everyone’s birthright.

May Carolina Friends School live these charges.

May all schools be a way for students to be empowered.
