Friends believe there is a

divine light in each of us that

deserves our loving attention. 

At State College Friends School, we are guided by this belief as we

provide a strong education,

grounded in the Quaker

testimonies of simplicity,

peace, integrity, community,

equality, and stewardship.


For more than 300 years,

Friends schools have educated students by honoring the whole child - mind, heart, and spirit.  Also called Quakers, Friends respect the individuality, and "that of God"

within each child.

Children and teachers are free

to discuss matters of the spirit;

we encourage children

to learn about the many

faiths represented in our school.  Friends welcome people of all faiths and points of view.


Friends education is devoted

to providing the best in academic instruction.  Understanding - not mere knowledge of facts is our goal. We seek to instill life-long values in children so they may grow into thoughtful, caring, happy, socially aware and involved adults.
