The Admissions Process



By submitting an inquiry we will be able to reach out to you with more information and to help you schedule a tour of campus.



Join our Director of Admissions on an hour long tour of the FMS campus to learn more about academics, student life, programs, and Quakerism.



After your tour, begin the admissions process with your application. Previous school records and letters of recommendation are required.



Once we receive your completed application we will schedule a virtual Admissions Interview with the Director of Admissions and Head of School.



Students who have gone through the interview process will then be invited to campus to shadow in their prospective grade.



The Admissions Committee will meet and make a decision on acceptance. The entire process from inquiry to acceptance can take up to 2 weeks.



Accepted students will complete an Enrollment Packet and fees. Once completed you will officially be a member of the FMS community!
