Each Virtual Visit or Virtual Open House is different and features a variety of school voices, but these short videos do capture the essence of AFS.
Watch these short presentations that provide a breadth of knowledge around three hallmark AFS traits: culture, community and Quaker education.
Values in Action: Diversity and inclusion education is our shared responsibility as a community; we each have a role to play. Successful engagement stems from education, exposure, and experience. Hear how AFS engages in this work from Lower School all the way through Senior year.
Engaging with the World: Our school has long prized learning through doing as central to the AFS experience. Hear how the Center for Experiential Learning extends the learning at AFS into professional mentorship programs, service, travel and summer opportunities.
The Power of the Personal : We take you beyond the Quaker school tradition of calling teachers by their first names to learn how our Friends school culture makes room for authentic teacher and student relationships that result in powerful learning experiences.
