What can you expect during our Open House?

Our family-friendly event begins with registration at 1:00 in front of the Read Entrance (located next to our parking lot). Families will be given tours and be able to visit our Commons area which will be bustling with tables and displays of our various grades and programs. Learn how students are leaders of their own learning; explore Friends’ rich arts program; and learn about our long-standing  social and emotional programs to support students. From our outdoor programs and small classroom sizes, to our Early Childhood Program, Friends’ dedication to children and their families is uniquely all- encompassing.

Have little ones? We will have a Lego area and book nook available for our young friends.

Autumn open house Coinciding event: Family Trail Walks and StoryWalk® at Friends Academy

In conjunction with this year’s Open House, we’re inviting the community, in addition to our current families, to enjoy a beautiful fall stroll on our grounds. Have you ever seen our on-campus ropes course, or taken a stroll past our vernal pool?  Newly maintained and marked, our 65-acre campus is the perfect place for an autumn walk in the woods! Join us for trail walks the whole family will love! For our younger friends, try our StoryWalk®, where families will discover the magical pages of a story along the trail. Older students can try their hands at a scavenger hunt, or bird watching, and for the more adventurous, self-guided trail walks will allow you to discover the wild beauty of our woods and fields!

Trails will be open from 1:00 – 3:00pm.

Our walks are just as beautiful in the rain, and our story pages will be laminated. We hope you’ll join us rain or shine!

Feel free to bring a friend!  Our trailwalks are FREE and open to the public.
