Let Your Lives Speak at Sandy Spring Friends School.

Sandy Spring Friends School (SSFS) is a progressive, coed, college preparatory Quaker school for students from preschool (age 3) through 12th grade, with an optional boarding program in the Upper School. Our pastoral 140-acre campus is in the heart of Montgomery County, Maryland, midway between Washington, DC, and Baltimore.

Our motto, "Let Your Lives Speak," expresses our philosophy of educating all aspects of a person so that their life—in all of its facets—can reveal the unique strengths within.
