Welcome FCS parents! Below, you'll find important documents, links, news, and updates for current parents.
The Home and School Association is the organized body of Friends' Central parents and guardians. The personal investment of mothers and fathers in their children's education is an integral part of the School's philosophy, and by encouraging parental involvement, Friends' Central accomplishes its goal of establishing a partnership between the School, the student, and the family.
