The Meeting House Magazine
A comprehensive magazine for Friends Academy parents, former parents, faculty/staff, trustees, former trustees, and alumni.
Our Innovation Courses span all three divisions and began in 2020 with the piloted Upper School Entrepreneurial Studies class comprising three central areas – Financial Literacy, Medicine, and Entrepreneurship.
The central premise behind each of these scaffolded courses resides in the practice of partnership and problem-solving.
The spring 2023 season was an outstanding triumph, marked by remarkable achievements across multiple teams. Three of our teams emerged victorious in their respective conferences, culminating in a Long Island Championship. In addition, over 45 student-athletes garnered individual accolades from Newsday and Section VIII.
The Fall of 2023 was filled with excitement! From bleachers filled with fans, you could feel the spirit of competition and camaraderie at each matchup. Seven of our fall athletes earned “Newsday Top 100” titles, a testament to their exceptional abilities and dedication.
In February 2023 the Friends Academy Arts Department performed their annual full-length winter musical production – SpongeBob: The Musical! With tap dancing, high-kicking choreography, vibrant costumes, and a set that featured porthole projections, live sound effects, and special effects of fog, bubbles, and confetti streamers, the Upper School cast and crew sang their way into our hearts
