About Us

Mission & Philosophy

We Live Our Mission Every Day

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.
What really makes Severn stand out among the other schools in the area is the true sense of community. That community extends beyond the school walls and includes the parents, families, students, and the faculty and administration. The small class sizes is what brought us to Severn initially but we are staying for so much more. The level of educational instruction and support beyond the basic curriculum is simply amazing."

We Strive to Be An Inclusive Community

Severn aspires to be an inclusive community where each person is welcomed and affirmed.  We find strength and value in our similarities and differences thereby inspiring students and adults to participate in and sustain a vibrant exchange of ideas and perspectives. In designing thoughtful programs and practices, we will broaden a culture of belonging and respect and an appreciation for the complexities within ourselves and others, and foster the desire to participate in a dynamic, global society.
