ABLE COURSES 2019-20

Delaware Valley Friends’ unique ABLE program takes our students out of the classroom and into the world to learn the critical skills of teamwork, self-sufficiency and leadership. Over the past few years ABLE has taken our students to Peru for mountain climbing and hiking adventures, to Costa Rica for a jungle adventure, to Florida and the Chesapeake for sailing, and to Canada for canoeing. This year, we've added a mountain biking trip to Utah. There are also opportunities for more local activities, such as hiking or cross-country skiing in New York, and day programs that include high ropes and rock climbing courses, and day-long bike rides on local trails.

We are offering seven ABLE elective courses during the 2019-20 school year. Click on the course you are interested in to learn more about it and to fill out an online registration form.


Please note additional costs for trips with air travel. Scholarship money for ABLE trips that involve a travel fee may be available to students who qualify. Please contact Kathy Barry concerning financial aid: kathy.barry@dvfs.org


PLEASE NOTE: STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE ONE ABLE COURSE PRIOR TO GRADUATION.

Students may choose to participate in more than one ABLE course during their time in upper school at DVFS, but they are not required to take an ABLE course each year - just one (1) before graduating.
