Why Friends?

At Friends School, we are excited for the future and for the critical role our School and our students will play in it. Our values-based college preparatory program readies students for the dynamic world they’ll be living in by developing in them the essential skills, knowledge, and habits of mind to excel academically and to make a positive contribution to the world. We know that powerful and enduring learning happens when students have meaningful interactions within and beyond our campus, interactions that help them realize the relevance of their education and understand the impact they can have by putting that education to work.

As a Quaker school, we purposefully keep our distinctive values in the forefront of all that we do, which allows our students to live and experience them each day. These values create and sustain a community that is inclusive, kind, and respectful; an environment within which every child can reach his or her full potential. As a result, our graduates emerge with an enduring passion for learning, and the maturity and confidence to challenge assumptions, inquire in depth, and take initiative; key building blocks for a rich and successful life.

I invite you to visit our school and see for yourself all that a Friends education has to offer, and I encourage you to ask about how we can help make a Friends education affordable to put this life-changing experience within your family’s reach.
