Goshen Friends' community outreach programs provide opportunities for our school community to become aware of needs within our greater community and our individual ability to bring hope and joy to others.What is “Community Cares”?Community Cares is the GFS service learning program that sets aside monthly class time so that students and staff can learn about the needs of specific focus areas, work on cooperative outreach projects, and reflect on the impact of such an experience. What is “Kids Care”?The GFS community has been invited once again to bring energy and friendship through group activities to our next door neighbors at Bellingham and Park Lane senior centers. Since this program's introduction in 2006, Goshen students and their families have looked forward to these Wednesday afternoons, where friends from several generations socialize with each other and bring smiles to each other's faces. Director of Admissions Mimi Ackers facilitates this wonderful intergenerational program. She can be reached by email or by phone at (610) 696-8869. Click here to learn more details about the program.

Goshen teachers are not married to “Teaching to the Test.” They tailor their teaching style to the needs of each class. The freedom to be flexible allows each teacher to discover and address the strengths and weaknesses of each boy and girl.
