"The Middle Schoolers are the most beautiful

teenagers I have seen (that were not home schooled).  They are confident, bright,

That is what I want for my daughter."

Founded in 1980 on the Quaker principles of equality, community, simplicity, peace, stewardship, and integrity, our mission is to provide an academically vigorous education in a nurturing environment that inspires a love of learning and prepares students to meet challenges with confidence and compassion.

We celebrate diversity and welcome families of all faiths and perspectives. 

Our students are nurtured to grow intellectually, think critically, work collaboratively, and communicate confidently.  Please visit us.  A warm welcome awaits!

What parents of State College Friends School students say:

". . . we were definitely looking for more than academics for our son.  A place where he could thrive academically, but also thrive socially and emotionally.  It's not just about teaching to the test, but creating a foundation and true affinity for learning."
