    "Both my daughters attended FA for Upper School... once they went to college they found it fairly easy compared to the rigorous academics they had in US.. Strong writing skills, strong morality and community service values."

    "The school has been amazing thus far for my older daughter. The nurturing teachers in the Lower School has helped her come out of her shell. She considers Friends Academy her home and has made wonderful friendships. The Lower School Principal and teachers have all been warm and welcoming to our family. My daughter is excited to go to school everyday and always comes home with a smile on her face. I have heard amazing things about the Middle and High School programs although I do not have any experience in either division yet. I appreciate the transparency of the on-goings at the school. I feel the communication has been great and I am always aware of any changes. I am a very happy parent and have complete trust in the school that we chose for our daughter."

    "I can't stress enough how prepared our children were for college/the real world after receiving a Friends Academy education. Aside from the obvious academic benefits of being in a competitive learning environment with small class sizes and super qualified teachers, they were prepared in more subtle ways that probably in some ways made more of a difference. Since lower school, upon leaving for the day, the children have to make eye contact, shake their teachers hand, and exchange some sort of pleasantry. Our children have learned to converse with adults, speak in large groups and how to dress appropriately for school (which has now spilled over to work). While these skills may sound superficial to some, they have set our kids apart from the rest. You can always tell a Friends Academy student when you are out and about. It is actually one of the many reasons we chose the school."

    "It is so enriching and transformational to send my children to a school where, not only they can attend from age 3 through 12th grade, but also where there are so many intergenerational touchpoints between younger and older students. Upper and Middle School students regularly pair up with their "Worship buddies" (Lower School students) in Community Groups to perform service, reflect on parallels in their lives (there are many) and share hopes, dreams and concerns. The result? Hand waving from younger to older students across the Quad; high fives in the dining hall; looking up to mentors for our younger students; and remembering what it's like to be a kid for our older students."
