The AFS Distinction:

Mission-driven education. 

As a national leader in Friends education and one of the oldest Quaker schools in the world, AFS is well known for its deep and resonant Quaker identity and spirit of collaboration and community.

High academic standards.

The AFS academic program builds deeps skills in writing, analysis, and research. Students develop a lifelong love of learning through a program that engages them in experiences that build curiosity, cultivate leadership, expand critical thinking skills, and involve reflection. These transformative experiences are the core of an AFS education.

Our class size and student-teacher ratios encourage close connections between instructors and students.

Our community fosters a deep connection between student and teacher. AFS educators see the full dimension of each student and are committed to inspiring them to discover their strengths and stretch their thinking.

AFS graduates are better prepared for college than their peers. 

95% of our graduates say they are better prepared for college compared to their peers. 100% of our graduates go on to a four-year college or university. See a sampling of where our graduates are currently enrolled in higher education.

Engaged and talented teachers committed to educating the whole child.

Highly-trained experts in their fields, our faculty have the freedom to create a dynamic curriculum. Lifelong learners as well, are constantly engaged in professional-development opportunities that keep them current on effective teaching methodology, practice, and theory.

Hold the highest standards of diversity and inclusion.

At AFS, our diversity and inclusion work is rooted in Critical Consciousness, calling for our community to go beneath the surface and beyond myths to develop a deep understanding. We aim to heighten awareness and personal expression, build meaning and purpose, cultivate values and culture, and encourage discovery, confidence, growth, health, and well-being.
