Academics at Friends

An Exceptional Foundation to Succeed in the World 

Friends School’s educational journey emphasizes the mastery of essential skills required to succeed in the world – skills like critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and leadership. Learning takes place in an environment of trust and support where ideas are openly expressed, debated, and tested in real-world applications. We ensure that students have an exceptional academic foundation, and teach them to be active, self-directed learners. Throughout their journey at Friends, our students develop a love of learning, that stays with them well after they graduate.

We invite you to discover what a vigorous and challenging educational experience looks like. Visit Us.
