Our nationally recognized Blue Ribbon School is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS-CASI) through a partnership with AdvancED. The curriculum, instruction and assessment are based on national standards set by professional organizations and focus on the individual growth of each child, in addition to the requirements set by the Catholic Schools Office of the Archdiocese of Washington and the Department of Education of the State of Maryland.
As children of God, faith guides our daily opportunities to grow academically and spiritually. This program overview shows an integrated and strategically planned curriculum designed to encourage intellectual curiosity, independence, and social responsibility through the years.

“Not only was it challenging, St. Bart's was very accommodating to my style of learning. They made sure that I received all the help I needed. The teachers really focus on the individual.”
"What I learned at St. Bart's went beyond what is in the textbooks. I learned organization, discipline, responsibility, the importance of service, and how to be a great writer."
