High School Admissions

Frankford Friends School is known amongst high schools for its outstanding academic program and commitment to creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking.

High Schools value our graduates, who are passionate, creative, and concerned citizens that have strong leadership capabilities and are quick to find peaceful solutions to conflict. Frankford Friends School graduates attend selective high schools throughout the Delaware Valley.

High school placement for graduating eighth graders is led by the Assistant Principal and Eighth Grade Advisor who assist families with navigating the high school application process. Part of this process includes preparation for high school interviews, writing of a personal essay, filling out applications, and keeping track of application timelines. The Head of School also writes and sends personalized letters of recommendation for each eighth grader and advocates for their acceptance with admissions offices.
