ASP December 20th (Half-Day)

The After-School Program will be offered from 12:00-5:30 on December 20th. There will be an early dismissal this day, following the Winterfest performance.

Important Distinctions between Study Hall and After School Program

Study Hall is open to all students enrolled in the Sally Borden Program and/or the Middle School.  Study Hall runs on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 3-4 pm and proctored by two current Sally Borden Program Teachers.  The Study Hall is one hour long and the teachers are there to assist students with their homework.

After School Program is open to all students from EC - grade 8.  The After School program dedicates quiet time until 4 pm for students to complete their homework.  Students may then engage in outdoor play time, indoor play time, or continue with their homework.  The After School program is proctored by four or five young adults.  The adults are there to supervise the students.  The ASP is open until 5:30 pm every school day.

Conversations with the Head

Families are invited to sign up for Conversations with the Head, which touch upon various topics in our school community. Space is limited and we ask that families choose only one event to attend.

On Wednesday, December 6 from 8:00 to 11:30, Admissions will host First Wednesday, a time for prospective parents to visit in classrooms and explore our campus.  Please alert interested friends that this is happening!  If you would like to be a Parent Ambassador at this event or have any questions, please contact Katherine Gaudet at  Thank you!

The Friends Academy Song Circles

In the paradigm of how music has been taught and shared for centuries, we want to continue and foster this tradition in our community. Join us the first Friday of every month, beginning in November, from 5-6:00 pm in the Commons. This is an offering for our parent/adult community. Bring your acoustic instruments.  Play.  Sing.  Share.  Follow along.  Or we’ll follow you. Hosted by our very own Putnam Murdock.
