Friends School seeks to live the conviction that there is that of God in each person. At Friends, we work together to build and sustain a community that is inclusive, respectful, and supportive of all people; we value diversity and cherish differences. Dedication to simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and stewardship permeates every aspect of Friends School life. Regular Meeting for Worship strengthens and deepens our commitment to these Quaker testimonies. Active practice of these principles nurtures empathy and fosters a sense of responsibility to the needs of others. Structured opportunities for service help students live the Quaker testimonies at school and in the broader community.
Friends is a coeducational college preparatory school offering a Pre-K to 12 program that promotes in each student internal motivation, diligence, a passion for learning, and a strong desire to excel. The school is therefore most effective for students who can thrive in an enriched and challenging environment. Friends School cultivates the intellectual, emotional, social, physical, artistic, and spiritual development of the students. Our program balances academics, athletics, and the arts.
Quaker education is a pilgrimage--a continual seeking after Truth. The search for truth requires a willingness to listen openly to the ideas of others, even in fields of controversy. Friends School believes that through self-awareness, growth, and service to others, that of God in each person is made manifest.
