Non-discriminatory Policy

At Potomac we're proud to be a community of vibrant individuals, from diverse backgrounds, with a multitude of passions. We are united in our belief that our school is intellectually and morally strengthened when many different voices and viewpoints are engaged.

We administer our educational policies, admission policies, financial aid program, athletic program, and other school programs, including the hiring of faculty and staff without discrimination based on race, color, religion, gender, age, nationality, sexual orientation, or any other category to the extent protected by applicable laws.

Why Choose Potomac?

P otomac teachers are among the finest in the country, in part because Potomac allows their unique passions and personalities to thrive. Because our teachers are also experts in their respective fields (more than 75 percent hold advanced degrees), our faculty say they get a professional boost from teaching with other great teachers. Distinctive to our school are the deep, enduring bonds that develop among teachers, students and coaches — bonds that often last decades beyond graduation.
