On Monday, June 3, Friends’ Central School held its annual Middle School Citizenship Awards Ceremony, recognizing and celebrating a handful of eighth graders in the Class of 2023 for their contributions as citizens to their school community and to the community at large.
In fall and early winter 2018, Friends' Central's campuses were abuzz with activity, including award-winning moments for our students, important sustainability achievements, athletic and academic successes, outstanding theater productions, orchestral and choral performances celebrating the holiday season, and inspiring guest speakers. Here are some highlights!
It is with great excitement that Friends’ Central welcomes 12 new teachers, administrators, staff members, and interns to the School for the 2018-2019 school year
It is not uncommon to see alumni/ae on campus each day, particularly after school on the playing fields and courts. Many sports, including soccer, basketball, track, wrestling, and cheerleading, as well as Friends' Central Aquatics (FCA), are led by alumni/ae coaches who want to continue the culture of sportsmanship and integrity fostered by Friends' Central Athletics. In an effort to find out what brings alumni/ae back to campus to coach at FCS, rising senior Miles Johnson sought the perspective of six alum coaches.
Friends' Central is excited to host the Philadelphia Area Independent School Fair on April 10 and the 2018 Educational Forum for intellectually curious students and parents on April 15.
