Our Mission


Mission Letter from our school head


At Friends School of Louisville, we believe the best education is one that engages the whole child. Our unique learning environment is designed to foster the intellectual, social and emotional development of each child in a welcoming and nurturing student-centered setting. Our innovative and challenging academic programs encourage independence and creative thinking, and equip students with the resources and ethical foundation that lead to productive and rewarding lives.

The core of a Friends School education is a progressive hands-on curriculum that incorporates valuable STEAM lessons with arts and service learning. We encourage thoughtful and nonviolent resolution of conflict, and respect and responsibility for the wellbeing of others. 

At Friends School children will acquire the enthusiasm for learning, social confidence and practical skills that are so critical to their long-term academic success and personal fulfillment. Our students are provided with the guidance, means and freedom to grow into imaginative and caring individuals able to enjoy life and flourish in the world around them.
