explore our CAMPUS

What's cool about our campus is that it's spread out over seven acres in Philadelphia's historic neighborhood of Germantown. The buildings are an eclectic mix of old and new, a unique look and feel more consistent with a college campus. With three gyms, three auditoriums, a student center, numerous open, green spaces and nine classroom buildings, it's a place worthy of adoration and exploration. The Meetinghouse, at the center of it all, provides a beautiful and spiritual focal point.

The Pillars of A

Quaker Education

At GFS, students and teachers gather in Meeting for Worship once each week. This is a time for shared, silent contemplation. Anyone who feels moved to speak may rise and do so. It is a simple formula, and can be a remarkably powerful experience.In these days of constant connectivity, the ability and opportunity to sit in silence have special value. Meeting for Worship is a cornerstone of the GFS culture that many come to cherish throughout their lives.

Girls Soccer Shine against Cristo Rey

The Tigers played host to Cristo Rey on Friday afternoon in the rain and cold, though the weather did little to cool off the Tigers’ blistering attack. We did most of our damage early as the girls showed a good killer instinct from the get-go and played hard from the 1st to the 80th minute of the match.

The Tigers played host to Cristo Rey on Friday afternoon in the rain and cold, though the weather did little to cool off the Tigers’ blistering attack. We did most of our damage early as the girls showed a good killer instinct from the get-go and played hard from the 1st to the 80th minute of the match.

The Tigers pressed high early on and were able to keep the attacks coming in waves, as Cristo Rey found it difficult to clear their lines and retain possession once they had stopped the Tigers’ initial attacks. Goals were scored by 5 different players with 4 being first-time goal scorers.

Individual performances were highlighted by Margaret Harvey, who scored a hattrick, Mia Raven who recorded a brace (2 goals), Annie McLaughlin who provided two assists, and a combined effort in goal as Sam Zimmer and Bluma Hammarhead kept a clean sheet. A great team performance, with every player contributing minutes in the game, saw the Tigers dominate from start to finish and move to 2-0-0 in a young season.

The scoring got started in the  4th minute when  Annie McLaughlin ‘22 delivered her set-piece into the box and Margaret Harvey ’23 beat her defender to the ball to open the scoring. Two minutes later Margaret received a pass from the right and turned her defender at the top of the box and slipped a pass to Mia Raven ‘23 on the left-hand side of the penalty area, who calmly finished past the keeper for her first career varsity goal! Just 3 minutes later, in the 9th minute, the Tigers added a third goal as Margaret Harvey scored again to notch her third goal in two games. In the 11th minute, Mia Raven ‘23  found herself free in the box after gliding past several defenders to slot home her second goal, and the Tigers’ 4th on the day. Freshman substitute Stella Ragas ‘23 scored her first career varsity goal in the 16th minute as she scored a curling effort that found the net after a deflection from a defender. In the 21 st minute, Margaret Harvey completed her hattrick after a mix-up in the Cristo Rey penalty area gifted Harvey an easy tap in.

The home team made it 7 when a dangerous cross from the left was turned in to her own goal by a Cristo Rey defender. After the interval, the Tigers added two more goals as Curran McLaughlin ‘20  scored her first career goal with a beautiful strike 22 yards out, from a freekick. One more was added late on as Dylan Ragas ‘22 laid a pass off to Claudia Rickels ‘22, who struck a beautiful shot into the roof of the net from 20 yards out

 

Final score: GFS 9 Cristo Rey 0.
