Rationale and Benefits

Our world is changing rapidly and profoundly, and we must help our students develop the life skills they will need in the future. We can best do so by staying true to our Quaker values and philosophy.

Friends Connects sets a distinctive course for Friends School.

  • We will remain a thriving, growing, and financially-sustainable independent school. In pursuing the direction articulated here.
  • We will continue to live out the values and ideals that have been our guiding lights since 1784.
  • We will motivate our donors to provide the resources needed to meet our goals, and we will inspire new generations of Baltimore families to make possible for their children the life-changing experience of a Friends School education.
