Customized Campus Tours/Visits

Join us on campus for a first look at Friends. Open House events are family friendly and a great introduction to the programs and people that make Wilmington Friends a leader in Wilmington's independent school community. If you are not able to join us for an Open House, or would like to visit with us while school is in session, you can register to visit at a time during the school day that works for you.  Because students at Friends have the opportunity to be engaged in so many areas of school life, we customize your visit based on your child's interests. 

For more information about our Open Houses or to schedule a customized tour, email admissions@wilmingtonfriends.org or call 302.576.2930.
