Our STEM Program

Cultivating Global Citizens

Cultural competence skills are interwoven into all aspects of our Middle School curriculum. Service-learning projects and discussions of global issues are part of our Quaker Studies weekly seminar and other classes. Middle school students connect with other overseas Friends schools and make global connections.

Our Culture

Quaker Studies

Quaker Studies focuses on spiritual development and ethic that are compatible with other religious beliefs, including those who may come from no faith tradition. Our approach centers around the SPICES, which are core values guiding Friends communities. Students also learn about the history of Quakers in NC and the world, and how they embraced the “inner light” or “that of God” in everyone. This curriculum calls us to practice our values in all that we do, at school, at home, and in the larger world.
