Thank you for your interest in donating to Friends Academy. Each gift, no matter the size, makes a difference for our students and school.
Friends Academy Fund
The Friends Academy Fund touches every part of the school. Gifts become opportunities to enhance our curriculum, expand our arts and athletic programs, encourage professional development for faculty, and provide new experiences for students.
Here are a few key examples from 2020-2021 of how we used Friends Academy Fund donations:
- Installing HEPA filters for all classrooms and office spaces to clean the air
- Building weather-ready desks and chalkboards to expand outdoor learning
- Replacing decaying windows that line the hallway next to our iconic Beech Tree and Morgan Street Bell
- Purchasing local chicken eggs for Lower School students to study life cycle development in science class
- Investing in new canoes to bring students and campers out on the river for outdoor education
- Buying a new curtain to support stage performances in the Commons
- Bolstering tuition assistance and faculty compensation
