Welcome to Individualized
Education and Lifelong Learning

Wellsprings Friends School is a place where the education of an individual student is as treasured as the interconnectedness of our community.

How truly fortunate we are to count accomplished musicians, folk artisans, conservationists, authors, researchers, martial artists and performers amongst our educators and administrative staff. At Wellsprings we believe in developing the entire student, we are unique in our approach and thorough in our pursuit of providing a quality education to the eager and capable youth we serve in our familial community.
