Thank you for your interest in Sandy Spring Friends School!
While our open house events for the 2016-2017 school year have concluded, we are open/available this summer for campus tours. Our preschool program is growing and we continue to enroll our youngest friends for this upcoming September. You may arrange for an individual tour of our campus by contacting the Admissions office online.
Our progressive, coed, college preparatory Quaker school for students age 3 through Grade 12 sits on a pastoral 140-acre campus in the heart of Montgomery County, Maryland, midway between Washington, DC, and Baltimore.
Sandy Spring Friends School is a welcoming, inquiry-based learning community. A challenging academic curriculum, enriched arts program, inclusive athletics, and service opportunities promote intellectual excellence, collaboration, and strength of character. Recognizing the unique worth of each person, faculty and staff at SSFS strive to challenge each student to reach their potential and develop individual talents.
Sandy Spring Friends School students are engaged in the learning process; enjoy the integration of academics, arts, and athletics; and seek to become constructive, caring and effective citizens of the world. We hope you will join our thriving community of scholars, performers, athletes, artists, thinkers, and doers.
