Academics

Our academic program supports HFS’ mission and reflects our Quaker values of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and stewardship.  It also strives to meet our students where they are and develop the whole child in mind, body, and spirit.  Our academic program converges students’ skills and interests with innovative content and fundamentals, high-quality, caring and supportive faculty, intimate class sizes, engaging delivery, and research/best practices in education.

Ultimately, our hope is for students to leave HFS carrying the light of confidence, critical thinking, creativity, and stewardship into the next chapter of their educational journey, and we believe our curriculum continually strives to reflect this goal.

In keeping with Gov Murphy's decision to close all public and private schools in NJ as of 3/18/2020, and the more recent "stay at home" order for all NJ residents in non-essential businesses in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, Haddonfield Friends School will be closed until further notice by the State of NJ. Classes have moved to online distance learning and the administration team is working from home. Calls will be forwarded and email correspondence will be answered as promptly as possible. Thank you for your understanding as we work together at this unprecedented and difficult time for the safety and health of all.
