Visit & Learn More

Tony McCudden addresses a group of prospective familiesThere is no better way to learn about Sandy Spring Friends School than to come and see our beautiful 140-acre campus firsthand. We host Open House and “Discover SSFS” events throughout the school year. See event listings below, and register for our Oct. 15 Fall Open House here.

Our preschool program for ages 3 and 4 is also growing and we continue to enroll our youngest friends during the 2017-18 school year. Please contact us at admission@ssfs.org or 301-774-7455 and we will gladly schedule a tour on a date that will work for you.

We hope you'll also visit us in town and on the road as we have tables and information stations set up at educational conferences, fairs, and community events. See our travel calendar here.
