Why Friends?

Academic Excellence

"We chose Friends for its intellectual environment that fosters learning and exploration beyond the national and state guidelines.

We also chose Friends for its commitment to character development - not just academic development - and for its unique ability to foster a life time love of learning."

- Parent of Upper School student

College Preparation

"When the first of our four children entered Play Group over twenty years ago, we could not fully realize the impact that Friends Academy would have on them and our family.

In addition to receiving an excellent education in a diverse student body, our school prepares young people for college and the years beyond by continuing its commitment to the Quaker values upon which it was founded. The Friends community, one and all, strives to educate the whole person, not only intellectually, but morally and spiritually. Friends Academy has certainly been our partner in bringing out the best in our children."

Outstanding Facilities

"Our daughter is having a wonderful experience at Friends Academy.

She continues to grow academically as well as socially in a nurturing and safe environment."

Quaker Values

"There’s a general consensus that a Friends Academy education is extraordinary due to the level of resources and overall reputation.

What cannot be grasped until you are a parent of a child fortunate enough to attend Friends is the commitment to its Quaker heritage and the values shared by the faculty and administration alike. It is clear there is a dedication beyond words written on a page. There is a deep understanding by the students as well as to why these values are so important. As a parent, we couldn’t ask for a better system to help guide our children."
