Explore, discover, learn.. and have fun!.. Welcome to the Friends Academy Early Childhood Program, the perfect space for our students ages 3, 4 and 5, where the children in both Play Group and Pre-K are brought together for many of the learning experiences in our program.. This multi-age group atmosphere offers numerous benefits to all children.. The older children become role models of positive behaviors as the younger children learn from them through observation.. This peer mentoring is also beneficial in cognitive development and allows the children to thrive in a family-like environment.. The Early Childhood Program is comprised of our Play Group and Pre-K programs.. Our Play Group welcomes our three-year-old members of the Friends Academy community, and our Pre-K program welcomes our four- and five-year-olds.. Our program emphasizes the teaching of the whole child.. Socialization, independence, and language development.. are fostered through hands-on activities and artistic and musical expression..

Painting on outdoor easels, planting flowers in our outdoor garden, and running and playing in the fresh air in our gated play area are just some of the wonderful experiences that the children partake in outside of the Withington House.. The children in both our Play Group and Pre-K programs participate in.. special-area classes.. on a weekly basis.. These classes include Spanish, Art, Physical Education, and Music.. Introducing a world language and fine arts at an early age encourages children to be creative and expands their cultural experiences.. Physical Education is important in helping the children to develop their gross motor coordination, and introduces them to the concept of team work.. The early years of a child's formal education are the foundation on which their academic future is built upon.. A strong academic foundation will foster a lifelong love of learning and help our children develop the necessary skills for future academic success..

My favorite time during the school day is the time in the morning that I spend welcoming children to school.. My goal is to learn every student s name early in the year so that I can greet each and every child by name.. It is incredibly important for young children to know that they matter.. Lower School is an exciting time in a child s development.. We have the honorable task of helping students to create a foundation for their learning..

  • Title: Friends Academy: Middle School
    Descriptive info: Middle School.. Athletics>>.. Faculty.. Student Life.. Special Programs.. Mr.. Rubenacker's Blog.. iPad Insurance.. When I was in 6th grade my favorite class was Social Studies.. While I was interested in the material, what left the largest impression was my work with the teacher and his continued interest in my progress long after I left the school.. Later on, in high school, I continued to have one great history teacher after another.. Finally, in college, my professor of ancient history commented on how fortunate one was to have the pleasure of working with children on something as important and meaningful as the study of history.. I think back on those interactions and quickly appreciate how I ended up in education, a teacher of history nonetheless!.. Many of us can look back on our memories with different teachers and quickly begin to connect the dots.. These relationships can be transformational and quickly work to send individuals down their path in life.. We have a great school with tremendous things  ...   our ability to forge meaningful relationships with all of our students.. Small, intimate classes give students an ideal setting to begin experimenting with their ideas, take risks, and to better understand themselves not only as a learner but as a person.. We strive to understand the complexities in their lives so we can deliver the most meaningful instruction with the greatest degree of individualization and care.. The Middle School program is built to expose children to multiple facets of learning and different ways of doing things.. Whether it's required participation in athletics, our advisory program, the arts or in their everyday academic classes, students are exposed to different disciplines in order for them to develop what their passionate about.. These passions can be transformative and last a lifetime.. We hope that you take the time to see all that Friends Academy has to offer, including our cozy corner of campus that we call the Middle School.. Best Wishes,.. for the Middle School 2013-14 Course of Study.. 10/16..
