Established in 1969, St. Raphael Nursery School has grown to become one of the premier preschool programs in the area — always while maintaining the warm and nurturing environment for which we are known. SRNS is affiliated with St. Raphael School (K-8).

Calvary Christian Academy
Calvary Christian Academy, an entity of Greater Mt. Calvary Holy Church, began operations in 1980 as a Nursery through Kindergarten program. In 1991, the church moved to 610 Rhode Island Avenue, NE. Bishop Alfred Owens, Jr. founded the elementary school in 1992, starting with a class of only 10 first grade students.
The primary purpose of Calvary Christian Academy is to use a holistic approach to teaching its students. The Academy assist parents in the spiritual, social, intellectual, physical, and emotional development of their child(ren). The philosophy is to motivate and impel students into becoming creative thinkers. We, the faculty and administration, interact with the students in such a way that learning becomes fun and activities become an integral part of their mental, emotional, and physical growth.
Founded in 1901, Holton-Arms School is a college-preparatory school for girls grades 3-12 dedicated to the “education not only of the mind, but of the soul and spirit.*”
The School provides rigorous and dynamic programs in the traditional academic areas, the fine and performing arts, and athletics. Here, young women of diverse backgrounds can take risks, learn from mistakes, pursue opportunities for leadership, and build lifelong friendships. Holton-Arms is a vibrant community that values consistency and order as well as creativity and freedom.
We seek to develop personal integrity and the sense of responsibility that help young women to make wise and ethical choices. We work to build the values of respect, compassion, and service to others, within the School and in local, national, and global communities.
We believe that with intellectual curiosity, self-reliance, tenacity of purpose, and commitment to others, Holton women will make a difference in a complex and changing world.
Christ Episcopal School
Christ Episcopal School (CES) is a diverse community celebrating over 50 years of academic excellence in historic downtown Rockville. A ministry of Christ Episcopal Church Prince George’s Parish, founded in 1726, CES honors its history while also embracing families of all faiths. We provide a rigorous and rich private school education at an affordable price. And, in addition to the resources provided by Rockville and the metropolitan Washington, DC area, our instruction reaches beyond our location in Rockville Town Square. We have now partnered with YMM Art Space, an international art education organization with worldwide locations, to provide our students with a superb visual arts program that is enriched with YMM Art’s global expertise. We have also launched an international student program, allowing us to assist students in obtaining an F1 Student Visa.
Our strong, collaborative curriculum provides a healthy challenge for students, giving them room to grow as individuals. The academic program also includes an emphasis on teamwork. CES students become experienced members of teams that research, collaborate and problem solve together, acquiring skills and values that support acceptance, appreciation and support of one another in both academic and social situations.
Students leave CES well prepared for the rapidly changing world in which they live and are welcomed into top independent schools and public school honors and magnet programs.
At Christ Episcopal School, every student and parent is a priority, and academic excellence, respect, and a passion to serve are the inspiration for our community. Every interaction is rooted in our CES promise: to nurture students to become kind, confident, well-rounded individuals prepared to contribute to their community and thrive personally, spiritually and academically.
St. Albans School
For more than one hundred years, St. Albans School has educated boys well. Here, boys learn to solve differential equations, construct castles and catapults, parse Chinese poetry and Latin history, reenact a scene from Shakespeare, and reargue a historic debate. They race underwater robots in the swimming pool and send lab experiments into outer space. They learn how to think and read critically and to write clearly.
Many boys come to St. Albans School because of the school’s rigorous college-preparatory program. They graduate, I hope, with something more. The long view, for our boys, involves the pursuit of wisdom and of a demanding and satisfying life, preferably dedicated to the service of others.
As an Episcopal school standing beside Washington National Cathedral, St. Albans places great emphasis upon boys’ moral and spiritual education. Our community welcomes faculty and students from all faiths and backgrounds. We encourage boys to find their strengths in many spheres: sports and arts are not extracurricular activities here; they are essential elements of our course of study.
