Annual Report

Abington Friends School 2019-2020

Dear Friends,

It is an honor to publish this Annual Report and publicly recognize the alumni, current and former parents, School Committee members, grandparents, friends, faculty and staff who have helped lift up our school in this past year through their philanthropic support. Though life at Abington Friends School (AFS) continues to evolve in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, our core commitment remains unchanged:

  • To fully live the spirit and mission of our diverse Friends school community, in our profound respect for each other and strong mutual commitment to the well-being of all; and
  • To support and sustain a vibrant, ambitious learning community that sparks curiosity, engagement and healthy growth for all students.

We are deeply grateful to all of the donors listed in the pages to follow who have made a gift between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020 in support of this mission, and we are humbled that even after a tumultuous spring, annual contributions from alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends totaled more than $850,000 this past fiscal year. Thanks to this generous support and the incredible dedication of our faculty and staff, AFS remains vibrant in these uncertain times. With a record-setting 136 new students in our midst, our student body of 563 will receive an AFS education through myriad creative and flexible avenues that sustain our standard of excellence. 

We hope that every member of the AFS community will consider joining these donors in the 2020-2021 school year. Every gift, large or small, makes a difference – especially as AFS continues to nimbly adapt to serve our students through the unusual circumstances of the pandemic. Please consider making your own gift to demonstrate your support for AFS and the distinct Quaker education and values that we are imparting to our students.

I extend our heartfelt thanks to all of those who made a gift in the 2019-2020 school year. With your continued support, we are excited to accomplish great things ahead, no matter what challenges the year may bring.

With Gratitude,

Devin Schlickmann

Assistant Head of School for Institutional Advancement & Director of Admission


The Fund for AFS is a necessary and essential component of the school’s operating budget and makes the school’s tuition assistance program possible.
