Germantown Friends School is dedicated to reaching that of God in every person. Our mission is to seek truth, challenge the intellect, honor differences, embrace the city, and nurture each student’s mind, body and spirit.

Points Of Pride

At Germantown Friends School, education is a celebration. Guided by rich, freshly relevant Quaker values, we enable each student’s light to shine and foster creativity and an exhilarating love of learning.

Early Childhood at Germantown Friends School provides a vibrant and engaging educational experience for the youngest members of our community.

At both our Main and Center City campuses, we join with our neighbors—artists and authors, families and shopkeepers, students and entrepreneurs—to welcome new voices and advance the common good, opening ourselves up to the brilliant diversity of the world. Combining structured activity and free exploration, our Early Childhood curriculum ignites a natural curiosity while providing the foundation necessary for success in Kindergarten—and beyond.
