Thank you for your interest in Sidwell Friends.

We are now accepting applications for the 2022/23 school year! 

Every year Sidwell Friends accepts new students in Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, 3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th, and 9th Grades.

Families are welcome to submit applications to our non-expansion years (1st, 2nd, 5th, 8th, 10th, and 11th Grades) however we will not know if we are able to accept a new student in any of those grades until late spring once our enrollment for current students is finalized.  

We invite you to explore our community and learn about the School. Come and meet us online at an Information Session! Questions about the admissions or the financial aid process? Please feel free to call 202-537-8111 or email
