Finding the right school is an opportunity to explore the many educational options that await your child. This is why we want our admission process to be clear, welcoming, and responsive – and for that matter – even a little fun. At Friends Academy, we seek students and families who are a great fit with our school’s mission, educational philosophy, and its involved, inclusive community.

Every morning, Friends Academy opens its doors to families from all over Southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island. For over 200 years, our wonderfully diverse community has been unified by the premium our families place on the education of their children – and their genuine desire to play an active role in that process.

Personal visits for parents and guardians are arranged individually throughout the week during school hours. You will observe small classes of students interacting comfortably and confidently with each other and their teachers. You will hear thoughtful questions and insightful answers, laughter and encouragement, and plenty of excitement. You will recognize our value for the arts and humanities, which strengthen and enrich our rigorous curriculum. And you will appreciate that our 65-acre campus not only provides us with excellent athletic facilities, but also serves as a spectacular outdoor classroom. You’ll leave wishing you were a student again, too.

The admission information found on these pages is designed to be helpful. Please feel free to contact me at 508-999-1356, ext. 1143 if I can provide any additional information. I look forward to meeting you and introducing you to Friends Academy.
