Admission

Thank You for Starting the Journey With Us.

Finding the right school for you and your family is an important process, one that is both equally exciting and challenging as you investigate, reflect on what you've learned, and come to a decision. At Sandy Spring Friends School, we encourage this inquiry-based method of learning—in fact, it's ingrained in our School's educational philosophy. 

We are still accepting applications for the 2020-2021 academic year!
Connect with us for more information about the application process.

Connect With Us

Our campus may be temporarily closed, but  our Admissions team is still available and committed to helping you through the SSFS admissions process for the 2020-2021 academic year.

Who We Are

Across our three divisions, we help students internalize a process we call "QRA"—Question, Reflection, Action—which ensures that they think critically, have opportunities to reflect on and integrate new knowledge, and apply what they learn. Our 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, our faculty and staff 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.
