Welcome to Friends Meeting School!

Friends Meeting School is a non-profit, independent school for grades K-12, centrally located between Frederick and Montgomery Counties.

Dedicated to giving equal opportunity to all students, regardless of background, we have a simple application process and a rolling admissions deadline to ensure that it's never too late to get your children a fresh start.

Applying for Admission

The application process at Friends Meeting School is a simple one!

STEP 1: VISIT

There's a lot about our school that makes sense only after you see it firsthand.  Click here to set up a personal tour.

STEP 2: APPLY

Download the following forms. Using the Application Checklist as a guide, complete and/or send the forms to the appropriate parties.  (The Application Form (with application fee) should be turned in directly to the school, and the other forms should be sent to the parties who will be completing them.)

STEP 3: SHADOW & Interview

Once a completed application packet has been received, we will contact you to schedule a shadow visit & interview date, so your child can experience life at Friends Meeting School (and you can meet with the Head of School) before you commit.

NONDISCRIMINATION POLICY

Friends Meeting School actively seeks a diversity of backgrounds and talents among its students and staff.  It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions and financial aid policies, staff hiring, or athletic and other school-administered programs.

Financial Aid

Our Financial Aid policy is blind and based on a third-party "Report of Financial Need." The process is as simple as we can make it:

1. Go to www.sssbynais.org to complete a “Parents’ Financial Statement.” Friends Meeting School code: 3305. Have a copy of your last tax return at hand.

• If divorced, separated, or otherwise filing taxes separately, each parent or set of parents should submit a separate statement.

2. Friends Meeting School’s Financial Aid Committee receives and reviews the resulting “Report of Financial Need” and makes a determination based on documented need and available funds. All financial information is kept confidential.

3. A financial aid award letter will be mailed to you. If you are offered an award and accept the terms, sign and return the letter. If you do not accept the terms, write the school within two (2) weeks and any enrollment fee you've paid will be refunded upon receipt.
