You Want the Very Best for Your Child

The main motive for families looking into independent schools can be summarized in one word: quality. You want, quite simply, the best for your children. At Severn, your child will be known and understood. They will explore and find passion — create and inspire. They will dare to fail, triumph, and seize boundless opportunities. Above all, they will learn to love learning. Visit, get to know us and take the first step to begin your Severn story.

Your Severn Experience Starts with Hello

We live in a world of sound bites and headlines. With the amount of information at our fingertips, sometimes a cursory review is all we can manage in our busy lives. But when it comes to exploring options for your child’s education, headlines and summaries are simply not enough.  

We offer an alternative to skimming through. We offer an experience for prospective families that helps you get to know us but even more importantly, helps you reflect on how best to meet the needs of
your family. In every part of our school, we believe the process—the experience—is as valuable as the end result. And your Severn experience doesn’t start on the first day of class, it starts with our first hello.
