At Virginia Beach Friends School, we integrate the Quaker values of equality, integrity, simplicity, peace, and environmental stewardship in a nurturing community of academic excellence based on the Quaker belief that there is that of God in everyone.
Virginia Beach Friends School was founded in 1955 and carries on the 350 year tradition of Quaker education. From a one-room school, we have grown to a vibrant and diverse student body of 235 students. We offer programs for students aged three through seniors in high school.
The educational programs at Virginia Beach Friends are characterized by rigorous academic challenges balanced with principles of personal responsibility, leadership development, creative expression, social awareness, and spiritual recognition. We strive to awaken each students exceptional qualities in a nurturing atmosphere while challenging students to attempt more complex problem-solving, to try new things and to take academic risks in their pursuit of becoming life-long learners.
