Greenwood Friends School is able to provide individualized instruction in a multi-age setting in part because of our small class size. Groupings include Pre-School (3-5 year olds), Lower School (K-1, 2-3, 4-5) and Middle School (6-8). When a group includes more than 12 students, lead teachers work together to plan and facilitate learning experiences. In grades K-8, students work in math groups of 5-7 students.
Important news about our Annual Fund….
Greenwood’s Give from the Heart mini-campaign for our Annual Fund has prompted renewed enthusiasm and support from old friends whose lives were touched by their years here at Greenwood Friends School. Current families and friends have come forward as well, knowing that we all need to stretch this year to support teachers, students, and to pay for resources that make our unique educational program possible.
If you have already contributed to our Give from the Heart Campaign, thank you! Pass this opportunity on to grandparents, family members and friends. It is a wonderful chance to invest in the life of our school.
Thank you for your support!

Under the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program, the State of Pennsylvania allows most corporations and shareholders of many corporations doing business in the state to make contributions to Greenwood Friends School in lieu of paying taxes. If your business owes at least $1000 to the Commonwealth, you may be able to send $750 or even $900 of that obligation to Greenwood instead of Harrisburg. Combined with the Federal tax deductions for donating, a significant donation to Greenwood may cost your business next to nothing.
And now, through Pennsylvania’s expanded tax credit programs, qualified individuals/households can make a contribution and receive 90% of the contribution back as a dollar-for-dollar reduction to their annual PA State Tax liability. Thanks to our membership with The Friends Collaborative, Greenwood Friends School can now benefit from this! This makes large gifts very affordable to make. For example, a $10,000 gift will cost a donor just $1,000 to make! And, if you itemize, you can also claim that $1,000 as a charitable gift. Eligible donors (must be PA residents or at least PA earners) who pay $3,000 or more in annual state taxes can direct a portion of their tax dollars to financial aid towards one or many Friends schools through The Friends Collaborative.
Please contact the Business Office for more information on either opportunity.
