Christ Episcopal School

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 Center. 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 also have an international student program, allowing us to assist students in obtaining an F1 Student Visa. This year, we particularly look forward to proceeding with our building plans and facilities update. In spring 2019, we will break ground on a brand new building for our Lower School, administrative offices, library, art studio and practice gym with locker rooms. This past summer, we renovated the large all-purpose event space in one of our current buildings into a beautiful and multi-functional venue.

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

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.

St. Albans students thrive thanks to close relationships with their teachers and fellow students, cultivated in chapel, on the sidelines, in small seminars, and during daily family-style lunches. The school’s welcoming and caring environment helps boys discover the strength they need to achieve their goals, to pursue their talents, and, ultimately, to find wisdom and joy in life.

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.
