Severn School is an independent, coeducational, nonprofit, college preparatory day school serving a diverse student population in grades preschool through twelve. The entrance and graduation requirements, the curriculum and programs, the selection of faculty and staff, and the financial operations are based upon the school's stated philosophy and mission. The Severn School community of students, parents, trustees, alumni and friends supports these purposes.
Severn School believes in educating the whole person in a student-centered, supportive educational community that values the dignity, self worth, and potential of each individual.
Severn School challenges its students to pursue excellence in character, conduct, and scholarship, to marshal the courage to lead, and to develop the lasting desire to serve and achieve. We believe this is best realized in a community where adults model these qualities and where each student is known and valued.
