Under our world-class curricula, our teachers lead lessons by a topic or theme that encourages our students to think across different subjects. For example, we might have a lesson that connects English, science, and art. In response to these classroom challenges, our students learn to think outside the box!
Our students also benefit from being in the heart of Washington, DC when they apply their thoughts beyond the classroom – as we can frequently take inspiring morning, afternoon, or full-day trips to amazing sites in the city (like world-class museums or parks), and can easily get involved with community service activities, too.
We want your child to be excited when challenged. We'll support your child through their growing body, mind, and heart with fun opportunities like extended overnight trips. Year 2 students have stayed overnight in Delaware, for example, while Years 7–9 have attended the North Bay Adventure Camp in Maryland. Years 10 and 11 have gone camping in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. And our Year 12 students take a service trip each year to spend ten days helping with local construction projects and other community initiatives.
