Our Strategic Vision

Upper School Admissions
Grades 9-11

A Challenging College Preparatory Curriculum

Our Upper School offers a challenging college preparatory curriculum for students in Grades 9-12, including the rigorous, globally recognized International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program for students in Grades 11 and 12. With its focus on critical thinking and appreciation for the development of the whole student, the IB program meshes seamlessly with BFS’s mission and Quaker philosophy, reinforcing the goals of drawing out each student’s inner light, thinking skills, and unique voice. To begin the admissions process for Upper School, you may create a Ravenna account and submit an online application. Once we receive your application, we will contact you to schedule an interview.

Admissions Process

All families who submit an online application by November 17, 2023 will be invited to schedule an interview. The $100 application fee must be paid at the time the application is submitted.

Step 1: Create a Ravenna profile. You will use Ravenna to complete your online application and all supplemental materials, to register for admissions events, and to submit the application fee.

Step 2: Schedule an interview. Invitations to schedule interviews will be sent via email to families beginning in September.

Step 3: Apply for Financial Aid, if applicable. Learn more about financial aid for Brooklyn Friends School here.
