Scattergood Friends School

We are a progressive and open-minded co-ed boarding high school with opportunities to learn on our organic farm and beyond. Our students enjoy learning through experience in living laboratories and adventuring into the world during our many annual opportunities to travel. Scattergood is unique in that we put a strong focus on academics while also taking time to create a vibrant, supportive community. We make decisions together contributing and want to hear our students' input on policy changes like our Inclusive Housing Policy.
