Join Lansdowne Friends School

We welcome inquiries and applications at any time during the year.  

We strongly recommend that you begin the application process by visiting the school or attending an Open House in the early Fall prior to the year of entry.  We also recommend that you submit your application in the fall.  Applications require a $75 application fee.   

Upon receipt of your application, you will be contacted to arrange an appointment for yourself and your child. Children applying for Pre-Kindergarten through first grade will meet with one of our teachers for a developmental assessment. Children applying for second through sixth grades will be scheduled for a two-day visit. Parent interviews will be scheduled during your child's appointment or visiting time. Parents are asked to bring school records and any additional relevant information with them to the admissions interview.  We also ask that your child's current teacher submit and return a teacher recommendation form.  

Admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis.   You will be notified of Admissions decisions in late January. Once your child has been admitted, a $500 non-refundable enrollment fee is payable. This enrollment fee is applied toward tuition.

Please call or email the admissions office with any questions you may have. 

I hope to see you on campus!

"Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for 8 incredible  years of community, love, and learning.  We could not have chosen a better place for our child to spend these most formative years of her childhood.  We are grateful forever for the incredible head start LFS's amazing teachers and staff provided our child, and we are thrilled to see her launch into the world - quite full of herself, confident of her rightful place in the world."  Alumni Parent, 2020
