Friends Select School is a coeducational, college preparatory day school which emphasizes the highest academic standards, and its small class size provided personal attention in a warm, nurturing atmosphere. Located on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in the cultural center of Philadelphia, students are able to take advantage of the city’s resources to learn and grow in ways not confined to the classroom. Our urban setting, along with our religious, cultural, economic, and racial diversities enrich each student’s school experience. Rooted in the values of the Society of Friends, the school emphasizes respect for all, simplicity, the peaceful resolution of conflict and a constant search for truth. Students are asked to examine and strengthen their beliefs, and develop the ability to respond to others in thoughtful and positive ways. The aim of a Friends Select education is preparation for the whole of life: the development of intellectual and physical capacities, and those of the spirit.
