Beloved Community Dialogue on Marriage Equality
On Saturday, April 26, 2014, The Friends School of Atlanta (FSA) will hold its 4th annual Beloved Community Dialogue, featuring an intergenerational panel discussion on marriage equality.

FSA Summer Camps
Fiona Thompson, FSA's wonderful Art instructor, joins other talented teachers in offering the FSA summer arts program. The summer arts program expands this summer to include drama/dance/movement camps (ages 5–9 only). The visual arts camps and drama/dance/movement camps will collaborate and have similar themes.
FSA is also introducing Math Camp, led by experienced FSA teachers using Cuisenaire rods, math manipulatives, games, computers, and robotics. Math Camp is for rising 1st through rising 7th graders. There will be two summer sessions, July 14–18 and July 21–25.
Find more information for these FSA camps, as well as other camps held on our campus, on our summer camps page.
