COVID-19 Status: While our campus is engaged in distance learning, the FCS Admissions Office continues to operate remotely. Admissions season for 2021-22 enrollment is now underway, and we welcome your inquiries. COVID-19 has altered some of our admissions practices, but we are here, eager to speak with you, and happy to answer your questions.
In keeping with the spirit of FCS, our Open Houses are truly “open”, welcoming events, and the best way to learn the most about our school—from FCS students, parents, teachers, and administrators. Enjoy an overview of our progressive academics and Quaker values.
We invite you to visit.
