An independent K-12 school on a beautiful wooded campus, 3 miles from Washington, DC

DID YOU KNOW...

 ♦ that one in six students at The Potomac School is receiving some form of tuition assistance?

 ♦ that almost every member of Potomac's faculty is participating in professional development opportunities this year?

 ♦ that the annual Scholarship Auction supports these initiatives, helping us recruit and retain our outstanding faculty and offering a Potomac education to students who otherwise wouldn't be able to attend our school?

The 2020 Auction planning is underway, and we invite you to join us.
