Communications

The Communications Office is focused on sustaining and building on Friends' Central's reputation as a leader in Quaker education and ensuring that community members, prospective parents, and alumni/ae are up to date on news and events at the School.

We manage the internal communications and external marketing – including the School's website, weekly Just the Facts Newsletter, news stories, photos, and video – that keep our past, present, and future communities connected.

If you have any FCS-related news (including photos and video), please contact us at communications@friendscentral.org, and remember to connect with us through social media

This coming year, Friends' Central is thrilled to introduce a new title and experience for the FCS Athletic Department. Now under the umbrella of Athletics and Wellness, the department will work more closely with Support Services, division principals, and curricula in an effort to better educate the whole child, Nursery-grade 12.
Upper School students and science teachers visited Green Bank Observatory, home to the world's largest fully steerable telescope. The trip was the culmination of a yearlong study of astrophysics and astronomy that featured a visit from Barnard College professor Janna Levin, author and theoretical physicist.
Friends' Central graduating senior Sydney Bennett is heading to St. Joseph's University in the fall, and as a result of Sydney's intelligence, hard work, confidence, and tenacity, she will attend the school on full scholarship. Sydney is a recipient of the prestigious Ignatian College Connection (ICC) Scholarship, a full-tuition scholarship awarded to just five high-achieving seniors.
