Most independent schools in our area offer robust academic, athletic, and extracurricular programs, small class sizes, and impressive facilities. And Severn does too. But what sets us apart is our commitment to helping students develop the skills and habits of mind that the world needs from leaders today. Education at Severn reaches far beyond what you know. It's about envisioning the impact you can make on the world. We learn together. We care for one another. And as a community, we reach for greater heights. We are excited that you found us. Welcome to Severn School!
Where to Begin?
Our admissions process is designed for you to learn as much as possible about Severn School. And our admissions staff is here to help you reflect on how to best meet the needs of your family. We encourage you to take the first step and inquire. A member of our team will reach out to share resources, answer your questions, and when you feel ready, set up your campus tour.
This is our favorite way for families to experience all that Severn has to offer. On both campuses, tours include a visit to every part of our school with a member of our admissions team or a student guide. Be ready for an interruption or two along the way…our students and teachers are eager to welcome new faces! Prepare for your visit with some helpful tips.
The lived experience of our students and faculty defines who we are and what we aspire to be as a school. We teach for who our students are now and who they want to become. The online application is an important step for us to learn your child's interests, goals, and needs. We know the value of varied perspectives in building a strong community and actively seek qualified candidates from a broad range of backgrounds and experiences.
