We Make Learning a Joyful Experience

The mission of the Upper School is to prepare our students for college and life. We believe that students who work closely with their teachers and coaches feel known and valued and committed to their own success. From the Italian Exchange program to Model UN, Global Civilizations to Advanced Robotics, our academic offerings are classical but diverse — a serious and joyful undertaking for our students.

A Note from the Upper School Head

I am proud to play a role in leading the thriving Upper School community at Severn School, where we seek to educate the whole child and foster an environment where each student is known and valued.

When you visit the Upper School at Severn School, you will no doubt be struck by the engagement of all our students and commitment of our faculty to forging meaningful relationships with their students. These relationships, and the culture of trust that they foster, are at the heart of all that takes place at Severn School.

In the classroom, art studio, hallways, or on the athletic field, students find opportunities to pursue interests and passions at the highest level, explore new curiosities and pursuits, and grow in preparation for college and beyond. It is in this environment of committed learners where Severn School students can feel free to take intellectual risks and develop themselves as students, athletes, and people.

I invite you to visit our Upper School and see for yourself what makes Severn School so special.

Go Admirals!
