About Our Host Campus:

St. Bartholomew School in Bethesda

No one falls through the cracks at St. Bartholomew School — because our dedicated and caring teachers really get to know each and every student. Armed with that knowledge, they are quickly able to assess and assist when a child begins to struggle (or thrive) academically, emotionally, physically or socially. Children deserve to feel emotionally safe and supported throughout the school day — and we are very aware that this sense of security is crucial when it comes to creating an environment that is conducive to learning.

More About St. Bartholomew School


With an impressive 8:1 student-to-teacher ratio, St. Bart’s is able to offer a highly individualized and rigorous educational experience, tailored to each student’s specific needs.  Certain critical subjects such as Math and Reading, our students break out into even smaller groups for more specialized instruction.  

Our upper school curriculum is designed with an eye on high school readiness.  Our graduates consistently place into the top 2 Catholic high schools of choice, many receiving merit-based scholarships and awards.


At St. Bart’s, our small, close-knit community is comprised of a unique mix of families, mirroring the culturally diverse population found in this area around our nation’s capital. 47% of students/families at St. Bart’s identify as persons of color, or of international heritage.  Our school’s demographics proudly reflect not only racial and ethnic diversity, but geographic, political, religious, and socioeconomic diversity as well.


As a private Catholic school, our St. Bartholomew community fosters and celebrates Christian values within an increasingly secular society.  Through weekly Mass and community service initiatives, and daily religious instruction and prayer, St. Bart’s instills in its students the importance of Christ in developing character and integrity.
