Tandem Friends School

Tandem Friends School weaves an ideal teaching philosophy and Quaker values into an academically rigorous curriculum to create a unique community of learning.

Tandem, founded in 1970, is a coeducational day school serving students in grades 5 through 12. Our students receive an education in which intellectual, ethical, artistic, and athletic ideals are pursued. We foster capable students who value a spiritual, egalitarian, kind, and creative community; thrive on independent, imaginative thought; are fully engaged in learning; and seek the best from themselves and their community.

Charlottesville Women in Tech

It is a proven fact that diverse teams are more successful. According to a Deloitte Consulting study, highly diverse teams outperform non-diverse teams by 80%. However, science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) organizations have yet to realize this benefit. The metrics on women in tech are actually getting worse as girls are 5 times less likely to consider a career in technology than boys.
