Training Minds and Transforming Lives Since 1908

Idaho’s Best Kept Secret

Christian schooling is an investment in your young person’s future. At Greenleaf Friends Academy (GFA), we not only prepare students for college, but for a life that will bring glory to God. Our students learn that with God’s power and grace — whether they experience success and joy or encounter adversity and disappointment — they can confidently face every situation.

Founded in 1908 by the same group of Friends (Quakers) who founded the community of Greenleaf, Idaho, Greenleaf Friends Academy is known throughout the Northwest for its academic excellence, outstanding music and athletic programs, and uncompromising Christian values.

Located in the tranquil Boise Valley just 5 miles west of Caldwell, the Academy has grown over the past century from a one-room schoolhouse into a wonderful facility consisting of classrooms, gymnasium, elementary building, preschool, cafeteria, athletic fields, and playgrounds to accommodate the needs of our students. Our student body represents over 40 different churches from throughout the Boise Valley and as far away as southeastern Oregon.

It’s hard to explain this place, but you can feel the family-like community when you walk in the doors. It is a very different private Christian Academy that fills a unique niche in the Treasure Valley, and among classical schools. It’s a place where kids can belong and be known.
