Archdale Friends School

Archdale Friends Meeting is blessed to have high quality child care and educational opportunities. Archdale Friends School offers a ministry which encourages each student to grow and develop as the unique individual that God created him/her to be. This is accomplished by providing a Christian/Quaker atmosphere that encourages the growth of students spiritually, cognitively, physically, socially and emotionally.

We take the safety and health of our staff and students very seriously. We have new procedures and policies in place during the Covid pandemic. This may affect arrival/departure times, enrichment schedules, etc.
