You probably already know that The Potomac School is one of the top independent K-12 coeducational college preparatory schools in the nation. Potomac is also an entirely unique educational community. You feel the vitality of our School the minute you step onto campus.
The School's mission is to foster each student's intellectual development, love of learning and strength of character within an inclusive community distinguished by a spirit of support and challenge.
We encourage students to become independent thinkers and learners. The School's richly varied curriculum draws students beyond a mastery of fundamental skills toward the rewards of inquiry, initiative and reflection. Believing that aesthetic and physical development are essential to an education, we offer students opportunities to excel in art and music classes, on stage and on the athletic fields. We expect students to act with kindness, civility and generosity of spirit, and, in our daily activities, we find opportunities to foster their integrity of character and civic conscience.
