Friends School Summer Camps are guided by the principles of progressive education, which recognize that children learn best as active participants, collaborators, and problem-solvers. Projects and curriculum are centered around helping students go deep and connect to the world around them.

Our small groups of of 14-18 children with a student-to-teacher ratio of 7-to-1 allow for every child’s strengths to be nurtured and well-known, and challenges to be supported.

Students learn best when they have a connection to what they are learning. Our teachers listen to the questions our children ask, and they let those questions guide our studies. Those questions connect our children to their learning and deepen their knowledge. Our summer programs teach children to ask and explore complex questions from multiple perspectives. We use skilled observation and deep reflection to help draw conclusions. This thoughtful curiosity prepares our children to thrive academically.
