Virtual Learning at SSFS

Quaker SPICES Signs in front of Scott House

Times of challenge often provide opportunities to innovate and think beyond current constructions to build new, and even better, structures.  As a school, we distilled the lessons learned from our virtual period this past spring, and we identified clear areas for enhancement. Then, we went to work to increase our capacity to deliver a robust, dynamic, online program in each division. We aimed for strong academic offerings during this phase of the school year, but we also aspired beyond that. We endeavored to translate the best of our school to a virtual model: our work in the classroom, our connections outside the classroom, our focus on character development and positive socialization, our commitment to Quaker practice and values, and even the use of our beautiful campus. Informed by research and designed with the deep care that defines our community, our plans show that we are ready for the start of a most unique and engaging school year.
