Future Friends! Thank you for taking this opportunity to learn more about Virginia Beach Friends School. We are an accredited independent Quaker school located on a beautiful campus in the Hilltop area of Virginia Beach.
VBFS was established in 1955, and for the last 63 years, we have been committed to creating a space where each and every student can grow into their very best self. The school’s shared academic, athletic, and spiritual experiences form enduring bonds of friendship among our students, and have an impact on our alumni long after they graduate. At Friends, students learn how to be part of a vibrant and connected community.
I hope that as you peruse our website, you're able to see the many reasons why VBFS is an extraordinary place. We strive to celebrate each individual’s unique gifts in a safe and nurturing environment while encouraging students to exceed their expectations of themselves, try new things, and take risks in the pursuit of knowledge. We give students the opportunity to discover their passions, develop their talents, and find a place to lead. Teachers and students work together to uphold a strong appreciation of community through practicing the Quaker testimonies of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and stewardship
Our admission process is personal and individualized. We believe that our success as an educational community begins with your careful assessment of our school relative to your child's needs and your expectations, as well as our understanding of how we can provide the best education for your child. As you come to know our school you will discover that we are more than just a place to learn, we are a community.
