The Camden Scholars Program at MFS has a long tradition of providing unique opportunities to students from Camden City Schools entering grades 7 and 9. Recommended by guidance counselors, candidates apply to Moorestown Friends School, visit classes, and are interviewed. Once selected by the Camden Scholars Committee and admitted, students receive scholarships that provide virtually full tuition to MFS.
Students are provided with an extensive academic and social support network while attending Moorestown Friends School. Students at MFS are encouraged to pursue their interests and develop their talents through clubs, leadership training, athletics, and performing arts.
More than 100 Camden Scholars have earned MFS diplomas and moved on to attend some of America’s most selective colleges and universities.
Camden Scholars Director Dorothy Lopez, who is also a math teacher at the school, serves as a liaison to help participants adjust to their new learning environment and sustain a healthy and successful academic and extracurricular schedule.
