Plymouth Meeting Friends School accepts applications throughout the year. To apply for admission, please complete an application by January 7. Applications received after the January deadline will be reviewed on a rolling basis, with PMFS considering applicants as space permits. We are accepting applications for 2022-2023 in select grades and for 2023-2024. Contact our Admission Office for details on openings.
The PMFS Admission Committee gives preference to siblings of current students, alumni children, faculty children, and Quakers should all other factors be equal. In accordance with our Commitment to Equity, Justice and Belonging, we aspire to be “an increasingly diverse, inclusive and nurturing community where everyone feels and creates a sense of belonging.”
If other documentation will support the School's understanding of your child and their social and academic strengths and needs, you may be asked to provide that information.
Step 6: Student Visit and Screening
Applicants may be invited to a Saturday morning Play Day, for a classroom visit, or to spend time with a PMFS faculty member. Conversation, observation, and a brief screening for age-appropriate skills take place during these events.
Applications are now being considered on a rolling basis for 2022-2023 admission. Families will receive notification of admission within 2 weeks of completion of all elements of the application process.
Applications are considered independently of tuition assistance requests, and families are strongly encouraged to complete their tuition assistance applications concurrent with the admission application. Go to Tuition & Tuition Assistance for more information and to apply.
The Admission Committee will use all information provided in making their decision. Families will be notified as soon as possible once an Admissions decision has been made. When a student is accepted, families receive a letter of acceptance.
Contracts, with tuition assistance awards, are sent to newly admitted families by February 1. By common agreement among most area independent schools, families have until March 1 to accept or decline admission. Families sign the enrollment contract electronically, with a $750 non-refundable Enrollment Deposit (which is credited towards tuition).
PMFS continues to accept applications past March 1 providing space is available.
