Parent/Guardian meetings for applicants will take place on Zoom or on campus from October 2022 – February 2023.
We feel it is important to learn about your family and to hear your perspectives and educational philosophy. Once parents/guardians have attended an admissions event and know they are planning to apply, they will be able to schedule their meeting with a member of the Admissions team. Applications do not have to be submitted ahead of time. Parent/Guardian meetings will be on Zoom. We plan to spend a half-hour meeting with each applicant's parent(s)/guardian(s) and we ask that everyone attend together.
We strive to enroll students whose families understand our mission and will support the values of simplicity, mutual respect, peaceful problem-solving, and service in our school community. We welcome parents who will actively participate in the Friends School family and help create a vibrant school culture.

Family involvement in the community is central to the continued growth and health of SFFS; families work together to help shape a school culture in which their children will thrive. SFFS parents are as actively involved in the school community as their schedules permit, assisting with service projects, accompanying field trips, or supporting parent education initiatives. Parents participate on a committee with a focus that resonates for them, whether it is Community Involvement, Equity and Inclusion, Library, Room Parent, or Admissions.

All family members are welcome to attend a monthly Meeting for Worship and all-school Parent Association meetings. Families also contribute to fundraising efforts in the school's Annual Fund, and at events such as the spring fundraiser. We strive towards a goal of 100% parent, staff, and trustee participation and have reached or come very close to that goal every year.
