Let Your Lives Speak at Sandy Spring Friends School.


Sandy Spring Friends School (SSFS) is a progressive, coed, college preparatory Quaker school for students from preschool (age 3) through 12th grade, with an optional boarding program in the Upper School. Our pastoral 140-acre campus is in the heart of Montgomery County, Maryland, midway between Washington, DC, and Baltimore.

Our motto, "Let Your Lives Speak," expresses our philosophy of educating all aspects of a person so that their life—in all of its facets—can reveal the unique strengths within.

ICYMI: Do you have a child about to enter preschool, or know someone who does? Our Preschool-Kindergarten Snapshot Days on Nov. 12 and 19 allow a first-hand peek into our classrooms. Preschoolers will spend an hour exploring our Preschool/Kindergarten classrooms while parents have an opportunity to speak with teachers, administrators, and other parents; ask questions; and see our program in action. Optional campus tours are also available. RSVP here.
