If you believe Frankford Friends School is the right place for your family, we want to help you be a part of our community! With a commitment to creating a diverse and inclusive community, FFS offers over $200,000 of tuition assistance to qualified students. Many of our families also apply for and receive additional aid through Children’s Scholarship Fund Philadelphia. Applying for tuition assistance in no way affects the admission decision. Financial aid is awarded on the basis of financial need and almost one-quarter of our students receive some kind of assistance.
