Friends Academy 8th grade field trip

Ever wanted to see an independent school in action? 

Join us, the first Wednesday of every month and take a peek into a typical day at Friends Academy!  

Join Friends Academy faculty and students for First Wednesday, October 3 from 8:00 to 11:30, and visit in classrooms to experience how Friends Academy builds student potential and passion. Katherine Gaudet, Assistant Head of School for Admissions and Community Engagement explained, “We wanted an event where prospective parents can feel the value of a Friends’ education. By inviting visitors right into classrooms, they can better appreciate and understand who we are and what we do.”

Visitors will be able to engage in a variety of activities. They can participate in an All School Meeting with performances and presentations. They will be able to see students in a Middle School math class or attend a Lower School language arts class. In Latin class, they will learn how nouns work and read a story. Visitors will also explore Friends’ grounds during a Middle School science class. Art, music and Latin/Spanish classes will be available as well as all grade levels represented PK- 8.

Visitors can join the Sally Borden Program classes which provide a unique educational opportunity for children with language-based learning differences.  Offerings will include an Orton-Gillingham lesson and a session of Lindamood Bell’s Visualizing and Verbalizing for Language Comprehension.

Tours will be given throughout the morning by current parents who will also be available to answer questions.

Other First Wednesdays will be held on December 5, January 9, February 6, March 6, April 3, and May 1.
