Grace is a small school (approximately 100 students) with a big mission: to provide an excellent, well-rounded education to the diverse community of children who make up our city and our world. With over 63% of our student body composed of students of color, Grace reflects the rich diversity of the Washington, DC metro area. Like our founders in 1960, we believe that we are all better individuals when we are a part of a varied and inclusive whole.
At Grace, our focus is on the most important years of childhood: ages 3-11. We are committed to meeting children where they are and helping them to grow. Our eleven-acre campus offers easy access to the outdoors, with time each day for nature exploration, PE, and recess. Music, art, library, and weekly chapel and assembly help to cultivate creativity and develop confidence, oracy, and performance skills. From Kindergarten and up, Spanish and technology round out a suite of twenty-first century skills. Finally, as an Episcopal school, we are passionately committed to raising individuals who serve others, appreciate the wonder of our world, and feel connected to a larger whole.
Grace graduates have an impressive record of outplacement and success in middle and high school; but more importantly, they grow into nimble thinkers, confident individuals, and compassionate citizens.
The River School is dedicated to children 18 months through third grade. The school’s innovative educational model pairs a master’s level educator and a speech language pathologist in each classroom, and focuses on language, literacy and social development. Classroom practice emphasizes experiential and collaborative learning, using thematic curriculum to seamlessly integrate literacy, math, science, drama, music, art, physical education and yoga.
The River School’s unique inclusion program is internationally acclaimed. Most students (85% or more) are children with normal hearing; each classroom includes a few children with hearing loss who use cochlear implants or hearing aids. The teaching team supports all of the children in the classroom, with every student greatly benefiting from the rich educational experience.
The River School is located in northwest Washington DC, west of Georgetown and convenient to the Maryland and Virginia suburbs. It offers the advantages of a neighborhood setting with a public library, shopping and parks nearby.

The Washington New Church School is a small but highly academic elementary-high school serving students from junior kindergarten through grade 10. Our teachers serve an average of 7 – 10 students in a classroom, so all get personal attention and encouragement to do their best. Our small classes also provide for a great family atmosphere in which young and old mix together at play times and older kids typically support the younger ones.
We are a distinctly Christian school. Each day begins with a chapel service or home room worship, and all the classes are infused with spiritual concepts and applications. You can learn more about this in the religious orientation page and in the interview that all new applicants have with the church pastor.
Sidwell Friends School
Sidwell Friends School (SFS) is a PK-12, co-educational Quaker day school with campuses in Washington, D.C., and Bethesda, Maryland. Founded in 1883, the School is a nonprofit, tax-exempt institution governed by an independent Board of Trustees.
In this special community, pre-kindergarten through grade 12, our students let their lives speak as they are challenged to think deeply and critically while reflecting individually and collectively. Our classrooms are lively as purposeful teaching and learning takes place in a manner that promotes care for the world we occupy and justice within our society.
Sidwell Friends School is a dynamic educational community grounded in the Quaker belief that there is “that of God in everyone.” Individually and collectively, we challenge ourselves to pursue excellence in academic, athletic, and artistic realms. We are committed to the joys of exploration and discovery. Differences among us enhance intellectual inquiry, expand understanding, and deepen empathy. The Quaker pillars of the school inspire active engagement in environmental stewardship, global citizenship, and service. We find strength in reflection and shared silence. At the heart of each endeavor, we strive to discern deeper truths about ourselves and our common humanity, preparing students and adults “to let their lives speak.”
