Light the Way

Launched in 2018, the first FCS endowment campaign, "Light the Way," exceeded its goal, raising $1.6 million. These funds will continue to generate significant revenue--independent from tuition--to help FCS support three initiatives:
1. Faculty compensation, ensuring we attract and retain talented teachers;
2. Financial aid, keeping the school accessible to area families and supporting our economically diverse community;
3. Professional resources, giving faculty the additional tools and skills to challenge and support every student.

Located in College Park, MD, Friends Community School is a progressive Quaker K-8 day school, founded on the belief that every child is a valued member of our community. We offer a challenging curriculum imbued with strong values of equality, integrity, community, environmental stewardship, simplicity and peaceful conflict resolution, rooted in our Quaker heritage.
