Shadow Days & Interviews

All students applying to Friends must schedule a “Visit Morning” or “Shadow Day” to engage in and experience life at Friends School.

SHADOW DAYS: Students in Grades 2-12 are paired with a Friends student from their current grade (younger students may be placed with a classroom teacher); applicants for grades 6 and 9 visit the grade to which they are applying. Held from the start of school through lunch (meal included), visits also include an Admission interview for students in Grades 6-12.

VISIT MORNINGS: Applicants for Pre-Kindergarten through First Grade participate in an assessment, meet our teachers and experience Pre-Primary with other prospective students.

All parents are asked to schedule an interview with the Admission staff, to discuss their student, ask questions and learn more about Friends.

We encourage you to apply today!
