Buckingham Friends School Admissions Application

 Buckingham Friends SchoolThank you for your interest in Buckingham Friends School. We look forward to receiving your online application and getting to know you and your family through our admissions process. A completed application includes the following:

  • The completed online application
  • The $55.00 application fee (you can pay by check or we will send a request through PayPal)
  • A teacher recommendation from your child's current school (form available on our website)
  • A transcript from your child's current school (form available on our website)
  • A readiness assessment (administered onsite by our qualified staff)
  • A parent interview with myself, the Director of Admissions, and our Head of School.

If you are requesting consideration for Family Financial Support, that process is separate from admissions. Please submit your financial information online through the button on our Financial Aid webpage. As soon as all of your tax information has been submitted we will be back in communication about your aid award.

BFS is committed to guiding you through the Admissions and Aid processes, and to ensuring that both experiences are clear, informative and enjoyable one for both you and your child. If I can be of assistance, please feel free to contact me, Melissa Clayton, Director of Admissions, at admissions@bfs.org.
