Friends Select School

Friends Select School is a private Quaker school in downtown Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The school has approximately 500 students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, and focuses on college preparation in the "upper school" (grades 9 through 12). With a history dating to 1689, Friends Select has been located at 17th St. and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway since 1885. The school has close connections with the Race Street Friends Meetinghouse, or Central Philadelphia Monthly Meeting, built in 1856, which is used by students and faculty for Meeting for Worship each Wednesday. The school is under the care of both this meeting and the Monthly Meeting of Friends of Philadelphia, or Arch Street Friends Meeting House, built in 1804.
