Application Process

High Point Friends School seeks to attract a diverse and talented body of students who are interested in pursuing a challenging and varied academic program. We welcome students of all faiths and ethnic backgrounds who feel a sense of commitment to our shared values of simplicity, peace-making, integrity, community, equality and personal responsibility.

Students with Diverse Needs

As is true at most independent schools, some students at HPFS are gifted, most are above average, and some have learning differences or special needs. Due to our low teacher-student ratio, the staff is able to identify and work with many special needs students. Experience has taught us, however, that limits exist, both in the range of needs that we can meet and in the number of students with special needs whom we can effectively teach.

Parents who expect that accommodations may be necessary for a student to achieve successfully at HPFS are advised to share all information regarding their child’s needs at the beginning of the application process. Failure to disclose information related to special needs before admission can result in the required withdrawal of the student and forfeiture of tuition.

High Point Friends School provides:

  • A well qualified staff who nourishes and challenges their students
  • An environment based upon Quaker Christian principles and welcoming of all faiths
  • A strong, college preparatory curriculum with an accelerated math program and challenging science program.
  • An environment which encourages diversity
  • Small classes and individual attention
  • A staff who is able to facilitate the learning process of students with moderate special needs
  • A hands-on, inquiry-based and challenging learning environment
