Our Application Process

Thank you for your interest in a United Friends School education! We encourage all families who are interested in attending UFS to apply. We open enrollment for the following school year on December 1st; Applications for admission received by January 15th will be given priority. Families are encouraged to meet the January 15 deadline to ensure that United Friends School has space to admit their children. Our application is rolling and will consider applications for grades that do not have waiting lists for the current school year.

Tuition Assistance

Applications for financial aid are submitted online; inquiries received after January 15th will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Flexible tuition decisions are made in conjunction with our Admissions calendar; less financial assistance may be available for an applicant whose materials are received after February 5. Flexible tuition applicants who submit all of the financial information by January 15 will receive their tuition plan by mid-March.

Step 1: Complete our online Inquiry Form

Families must complete an online inquiry at the start of the application process.

Step 2: Parent Phone Meeting with the Director of Admissions

All families who are interested in applying to United Friends School must meet with the Director of Admissions via a 15-minute phone Information Session. Parent interviews are required for all applicants. Once you have completed the inquiry form above, the Director of Admissions will contact you to set up your in-person appointment. The next step is to provide new families with a private tour of school facilities. We will offer specific information session and tour hours according to grade level.
