Employer Description
 
FOUNDED IN 1876 by Gideon Frost for "the children of Friends and those similarly sentimented, " Friends Academy is a Quaker, coeducational, independent, college-preparatory school for students age three through twelfth grade. Our philosophy is based in the principles of integrity, simplicity, patience, moderation, peaceful resolution of conflict, and a belief that the silence and simple ministry of the "gathered meeting" bring the presence of God into the midst of our busy lives. Friends is committed to developing a diverse community whose members value excellence in learning and growth in knowledge and skills. We are also committed to service and ethical action, and to an understanding that every life is to be explored, celebrated and enjoyed in the spirit of the Religious Society of Friends.
