With the high caliber and competitive nature of the high school admission process, you will feel confident in our approach to helping you find the right high school for your son or daughter.
Why are our students highly sought after by high schools and successful in life beyond college?
1. Green Acres is recognized as a national leader in pre-high school education.
- 90% of our students are accepted into their first choice high schools.
- We have a deep and trusted relationship with the most competitive high schools in Maryland, Virginia & the District.
2. We build future leaders in a way only a Pre-K to grade 8 school can.

- The application process to high school prepares students and parents for the college process.
