The basis of academic life and community life at Wellsprings is articulated in our booklet of Understandings and Agreements. Every prospective student is given a hard copy when they apply. During the admissions interview, the Understandings and Agreements are discussed in detail with the student and parent/guardian. Below you can read what we call our five “Basic Agreements”.

Agreement 1:

I want to be here and want to participate in the Wellsprings community.

I understand that Wellsprings Friends School is a learning community with few but very meaningful traditions and expectations. School traditions include such things as Morning Circle, Community Meetings, Silent Meetings, and Friday Activities, which are part of required credit for graduation. Expectations include performing chores, respecting all persons, and respecting the property of others. I agree to try to live up to the basic ideals of the school and to take part in community activities with a willing attitude.
