A custom pathway to reach beyond traditional learning
Our Extradisciplinary Certificate Program is the embodiment of academic innovation at Friends School.
This unique elective program offers Upper School students the opportunity to create and explore areas of academic interest by combining different learning experiences. Call it a customizable pathway to reach beyond the traditional bounds of any single course of study or academic department.
To earn a certificate, interested students can “bundle” different activities — including academic course work, club involvement, speaker series, independent studies, internships, and other capstone project(s) — that are related by theme or area of interest and that, together, form a rich ensemble. Certificates that can be earned include STEAM; Sustainability; Renaissance Scholars; Global Studies; Social Justice, Diversity and Equity; Artistic Expression; Pathway to Leadership; Public Health; Quakerism, Baltimore Urban Immersion and Engagement, Entrepreneurship and Design Your Own Certificate.
The Extradisciplinary Certificate Program is one of the many ways that Friends School prepares students for the future — and any future — by inspiring innovation, and instilling the confidence to challenge, inquire and take action.
