About the Cause

Friends School of Wilmington is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization. Friends School of Wilmington is Southeastern North Carolina’s only progressive, independent school, ages 18 months through 8th grade. For 24 years, Friends School has been providing an outstanding education to children in our community. Our vigorous academic curriculum is built on nationally-recognized programs for preschool through 8th grade.

With and a social curriculum that celebrates inclusivity, small class sizes, hands-on learning, field trips and extracurricular opportunities, Friends School helps students develop into confident, creative thinkers.

FSW’s inclusive environment is rooted in Quaker values, emphasizing fundamental principles such as stewardship, equality, and social justice.

Friends School is a progressive learning community committed to teaching children to find and keep their balance in a changing world. Firmly rooted in enduring Quaker values, Friends School is a vibrant learning community that chooses simplicity, peaceful resolution of conflict, integrity, equality, and stewardship of the earth as a collective and personal responsibility.

Friends School students are lovingly educated; they travel to many destinations and experience school as a place that is propelled by possibility, motivated by optimism, unrestricted by convention, reinforced by achievement, and guided by principle.
