Portrait of our Community

In support of our mission, the Friends Academy community has created a statement of principles called the Portrait of our Community -- REACHES OUT. Each day we challenge ourselves to demonstrate these qualities in our thoughts, words, and deeds.

R espectful, responsible, and reflective
E nthusiastically embraces learning
A ppreciates all diversity
C ompassionate and courageous
H onest and humble
E ngages in service within and beyond the school community
S trives for spiritual awareness, emotional well-being, and physical health

O pen-minded and creative in pursuit of excellence
U nderstands and honors Quaker testimonies
T hinks analytically and independently

We believe that the most noble of callings is guiding students to discover enduring truths that lead them to do good works. We believe that a Friends Academy education transforms lives in the realization of our Quaker ideal
