Friends Academy looks for students who are joyful, curious, and engaged learners. Children who are generous of heart and inclusive and compassionate friends will fit into our school seamlessly. Above all else, we want to make sure that the student will be academically and socially successful at Friends Academy. This is determined by a variety of factors that are explored during the admissions process: the visit to Friends, school transcript, and the teacher recommendation all help us to assertain if there is a good “fit.”
No. Our admissions process is on a rolling basis throughout the year. Please contact the Admissions Office and we will be happy to advise you.
Yes. Friends Academy is committed to the socioeconomic diversity of its student body. Each year, approximately 40% of the student body receives financial assistance. The Financial Aid Committee awards grants to families demonstrating economic need based upon a review of their documentation submitted through School and Student Services (SSS) by NAIS.
Applying for financial aid does not have an impact upon a student’s admission decision. The Admissions Committee meets first to make decisions on the candidacy of each applicant. Files of those students who qualify for admission are then sent to the Financial Aid Committee, if tuition assistance is needed. Notifications for both admissions and financial aid are on a rolling basis.
