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, and remember to connect with us through social media
