Enrollment is Now Open for the 2021-2022 School Year! 

Enrollment is now open for the 2021-2022 school year. Log on to the AFS Portal to confirm your enrollment.

At AFS, you are part of an authentic and ambitious school culture. At a Friends school, you get a unique education. It is thoughtful, aspiring and advances the development of young people. AFS knows your kids, we love your kids and we are excited to continue to grow and learn together with them.

Same School, New Discoveries
With each advancement in grade comes new opportunities for parents and students. There are different events to attend, teachers to meet and insights to develop.

Younger students may be learning how to read, reciting a poem, understanding melody in music, engineering a bridge structure in science, or presenting research in Spanish.

Older students may be deciding to enhance their school experience by participating in our award-winning theater program; applying to an experiential learning cohort such as FarmEx, ChefEx, LawEx, MedEx or BizEx; preparing to lead a diversity and inclusion workshop; prepping to play a varsity sport; studying to compete in Model UN; or thinking about joining a leadership conference.

Our powerful academic program places a high premium on learning through inquiry and experience. We know and appreciate every student for who they are and empower the important voice that bring to our community. We welcome you to enroll by February 12 for the AFS 2021-2022 school year.

We acknowledge and appreciate your active choice in your child’s education. Thank you for recognizing the value of an AFS education. With hope on the horizon for the coming year, we have so much to look forward to in the joyful community that is AFS. With growing freedom over the coming  months, we are eager to return to a full program in the arts, athletics, experiential learning, enrichment, community events and so much more. We can’t wait to be on this journey with your family for the 2021-2022 school year.
