On Wednesday, January 10th 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, 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.



Many thanks to the parents who have been contributing to our athletic photo galleries! If you have athletic photos you'd like to share, email Kelly Pelissier and she'll provide you with an upload link. Halloween photos are there as well! Click here to view.
