From Wilmington Friends School

Founded in 1748, Wilmington Friends provides an education rooted in timeless Quaker values (notably simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and stewardship). We continually seek opportunities to evolve and grow, and to create a learning environment where children—preschool to grade 12—can be themselves while becoming their best selves. We provide a challenging, customizable program that welcomes families of diverse backgrounds, provides varied opportunities, and develops the critical and original thinking, work ethic, self-advocacy skills, fellowship, and commitment to equity that create informed scholars, leaders, and world citizens.

Quaker Education

90% of the students who attend Wilmington Friends are non-Quakers. What brings families to Quaker education is often the appeal of an academic program with depth--one that truly asks students to think, to collaborate, to be creative, to take risks--within a caring community that balances focus on the individual with responsibility to the common good.
