Transfer to DV Mid-year

What factors should you consider when choosing a school?


Our admissions process is collaborative: as you learn about our school, we seek to learn about your child. Our goal is to ensure that Delaware Valley Friends truly represents the right fit for his or her needs.

The best way to experience Delaware Valley Friends is to visit us in person – touring our facility and meeting with current students, faculty, and staff. We offer monthly Admissions Information Sessions and frequent group tours throughout the year.
