Abington Friends School is hosting a Fall Admission Virtual Visit, Tuesday Nov. 10, that will serve as an informational session covering the admission process and includes presentations about academics and student life.

AFS is a vibrant and ambitious Quaker school that cultivates informed change-makers who lead authentic and accomplished lives.

The School welcomes families who seek an education that is intellectually exciting and is designed to provide the best learning experience possible to students and teachers alike by infusing Quaker values into daily academics.

“AFS has really helped me challenge myself and understand what college level classes feel like,” said Isabelle Newman, an AFS alum. “It has offered me space to push myself while still having an active support system.”

Led by Head of School Rich Nourie and Director of Admission Devin Schlickmann, the online event will offer an opportunity for an open Q&A with administrators and admission representatives, as well as parents of current students.

The Nov. 10 Virtual Visit event is free, however, attendees must register. Those who are interested but cannot attend may opt for an in-person tour or a one-on-one phone or Zoom call with an Admission Representative.

Parents and students also have the option to take a Virtual 360° Tour that features over 100 information hotspots and includes images and videos of the Lower, Middle and Upper School common rooms and classrooms.

“I visited AFS with my children in January of 2020,” said Jamina, a parent of current Middle School students. “I learned about their strong Quaker values, commitment to diversity and the rigorous learning activities that my children would experience.”

“I also saw first-hand their commitment to ensuring that every child felt safe, valued and heard.  Even as visiting students, the host teachers took time to hear my children and to truly welcome them into the community. I knew after I left our visit, that AFS was where I wanted my children to be.”

Register for the Nov. 10 Virtual Visit here to learn more about AFS’ admission process, or schedule an in-person tour or a one-on-one call by contacting the Office of Admission here.
