Scattergood Friends School:
Located in Cedar County in southeast Iowa, Scattergood Friends School is a co-educational Quaker boarding and day school founded in 1890. We provide a college preparatory education with AP courses, SAT and ACT to students in Grades 9-12 from around the world.
Scattergood is accredited by the Iowa Department of Public Instruction as well as the Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS).
Through a strong academic program, a cooperative work program, and community life based on Quaker values, Scattergood Friends School prepares students with:
- Commitment to life-long learning
- Ability to live constructively in a community
- Skills to attain future academic and vocational success
- Recognition of self worth
- Sense of global citizenship
- Growing spiritual awareness
Scattergood Friends School is an educational community that seeks motivated learners who value simplicity, personal integrity and non-violence. We believe that the integration of these Quaker values within our holistic curriculum promotes excellence.
At Scattergood, we bring forth the strengths of each individual through a diverse, well rounded experience which prepares students for higher education and life-long learning. As a community, we work and learn on our organic farm, participate in a work crew program and explore responsible use of technology.
We cultivate our inner voice through quiet spiritual reflection and use that voice in community shared leadership. At Scattergood, we value the development of the whole person within the context of the global community, instilling a sense of place and purpose as we carry our values and commitment into the wider world.
Unique in our approach, we emphasize living in community and are devoted to fostering the growth of the whole person. As part of our program, we also offer an independent study program where students choose topics of interest, a laptop program, and month long trips.

Scattergood’s unique status as a boarding school allows a students to gain experience in many areas. We provide five day and full boarding (including weekends) options. Students share dorms in groups of 25, hang out in the dorm or student lounge, and spend time with their roommates.
In the course of one weekday, a student will sit quietly in Collection, attend classes, be part of a cooperative work crew, exercise their creativity in an art project, take part in physical education, eat meals with their friends and teachers, prepare for their next day's classes etc.
In addition to this, some days offer student or community meetings and special events such as presentations from visitors. Flowing through all these activities is the sense of community that comes from living and learning together.
With one glance at the Scattergood calendar, it quickly becomes obvious that special, all-community events are a fundamental part of the school schedule. This is a conscious decision, arising from the belief that community does not just happen, but is built through a process of living, working, and playing together.
