High School & Beyond

At Green Acres School, we prepare our students for entry into an impressive range of high schools by instilling in them the skills to make them attractive candidates for admission. 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 child.

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.

  • Culminating in grade 8, our students prepare as leaders outside the shadow of high school. 
  • Our concentrated focus on the ages we serve creates a program undiluted by the demands of a larger program.
  • The application process to high school prepares students and parents for the college process.

3. Green Acres prepares students to thrive, not just get accepted into high school.

  • We work with students and parents through every step of the admission process to find the right school, help them put their best foot forward, and advocate on their behalf.  
  • Our program focuses on developing both core academic and interpersonal skills that are critical in high school and in life.
4. Our graduates have a broad set of skills sought after by elite universities and top employers.

  • Graduates attend the most selective colleges, including Ivy League universities, apex engineering programs, and top liberal arts colleges.
  • Our students rise up the ranks in the real world due to the collaborative leadership skills they gained by practicing them daily at Green Acres.
  • Many of our students take to heart our adage of being makers and risk takers and become accomplished entrepreneurs.
