Mission & Vision
The mission of Carolina International School is to nurture students’ natural curiosity and joy of learning while they achieve academic excellence through a challenging, interdisciplinary, international curriculum. Our students, parents, teachers, and staff help to create a stimulating learning community that develops:
- Critical and compassionate thinkers
- Confident and open-minded communicators
- Resourceful and responsible citizens and leaders of our local and global communities.
Four Core Values
We strive to develop caring and compassionate students and citizens who embody those character traits most respected in every culture. Hence character development at CIS is immersed in every interaction and learning experience as a continual school-wide process. The program includes a service-learning component and actively involves parents and community leaders.
The values that form the core of daily relationships and interactions in our school:
We will respect others and their property at all times.
We will listen to each other, knowing that we have individual differences that make us unique and valuable.
We will accept responsibility for our words and actions.
We will treat others as we would like to be treated.
We will create a positive environment where problems are met with creative solutions.
We will actively seek ways to help others in our school, our community, and our world.
CIS Before & After School Program (BASP)

The behavior standards will be the same as for CIS classes: All students are expected to respect each other, cooperate with teachers, and accept responsibility for their own actions. Students will have study time, snacks, and supervised activities.
