Robert Pollicino, Upper School Principal

Thanks for your interest in our Upper School. We know you have a lot of great choices in the DC-area for grades 9-12, but we feel our program is truly exceptional in its balance of arts, academics and athletics. Students here do not have to give up a favorite activity to focus on another. Our teachers focus on quality of assignments over quantity, and use technology and engaging projects to make learning more meaningful and relevant to students today. We juggle a challenging course curriculum with new signature programs to provide an array of interesting classes, and enhance classroom learning with social and community development opportunities that help students learn to make smart decisions and respect each other and themselves.

Come for a tour and please visit this page to learn more about what makes our Upper School so special. I look forward to meeting you.
