Financial Aid

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

We recommend that any family who has a concern about the affordability of an education at FMS contact James Farber, Jr., Business Manager, at (301) 798-0288 ext 122 to discuss financial aid and the various payment options that are available to our families.

Financial aid may be available to qualifying families. Any family who desires that their child or children attend FMS but feels they cannot afford to pay full tuition and fees should apply for financial aid. FMS exists to educate children. An empty seat is a lost opportunity to fullfill our mission.

When you apply for admission to FMS you may request information and/or a financial aid application. That application may be submitted online through

S.S.S. (School and Student Services), a division of N.A.I.S (National Association of Independent Schools). They prepare a standardized report that the FMS' financial aid committee uses as the basis to compare need between students. Numerous other factors are considered as well
