Real Learning for Real Life.

It's a noisy world these days. Screens and fleeting interactions substitute for real connection, while shouting and name-calling fill in for high discourse. News is only news if it can sell ads, and cat videos get more views than any good deed.

Far away from the hustle and bustle, amid the rolling hills between Frederick and Montgomery County, Annette Breiling built a learning community devoted to the Friends ideals of Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality and Stewardship. 50 acres of natural beauty greet our students every single day, and offer a peaceful backdrop for joyful learning.

Our small classes and differentiated instruction create an environment where anyone can learn to the best of their ability, and where students who used to be excluded can truly excel. Play-based, student-led activities in the early years are gradually replaced by Honors- and AP-level courses in the high school, creating a broad base of experiences and understandings – lessons that last a lifetime.
