60+ Years of Inclusive, Supportive Learning

We are a learning community committed to academic excellence that focuses on solving problems rather than rote memorization – the only school of its kind in High Point. A Friends education does not seek to inculcate a particular set of beliefs or doctrine; instead, we empower students to grow academically, emotionally, socially and spiritually while finding their voices, exploring their interests, and developing into compassionate individuals ready to make a positive difference in our world.

Shaping Exceptional Education

It is through generous contributions and steadfast commitment that we are able to go above and beyond in providing a transformative educational experience. Making a gift to the Annual Fund is making an investment in the people of HPFS. The Annual fund provides access to a HPFS education through need-based financial assistance for students who otherwise would not be able to afford this educational opportunity, and it provides professional development funds for teacher training which has a profound impact on the quality of the educational experience for our students.
