Friends Select draws its identity from its Quaker beliefs and from its Center City location. Framed by this basic identity, its mission is to provide a challenging, college-preparatory academic program to a diverse student population and offer a full complement of athletic, art, and community service options. Friends Select is both rigorous and nurturing; focused on intellectual – rather than rote – learning, yet committed to skill development; comprehensive in program though small in relative size; and attentive to the individual as well as the community. The school blends the best of what is traditional with the best of what is current.
