about us
Abington Friends School is a Quaker, coeducational college-preparatory school serving students from 3 years of age through grade 12.
who we are
Welcome to AFS, a vibrant, joyful, and ambitious Quaker school, a community of unusual spirit and an uncommon blend of values.

In this Friends environment, children develop deep roots of inner strength, the ability to thrive in dynamic settings, and the capabilities to enrich and make the most of their future college and professional communities. AFS is a school that joyfully embodies its mission. Our students are fully immersed in the classroom experience, in the arts, on playing fields, and in the precious times they enjoy just being together on the playgrounds or on Student Street.

Full engagement, in the vital intellectual world of the classroom, in the arts and athletics, in community decision-making, and in the larger community that surrounds us, is a hallmark of AFS. It stems from our commitment to appreciating children fully for who they are and with a vision for who they may become.

Community and classroom life is rooted in profound respect for individuals, Quaker attunement to finding spiritual meaning in day-to-day life, and an intellectually powerful capacity for the collaborative search for truth and deeper understanding.

I'm delighted to invite you to explore AFS in its beautiful setting, its unusual and indispensible diversity, and powerful program.
