Pre-Kindergarten Boy Throwing Flower Petals

National Presbyterian School focuses on the all-important decade of childhood, offering boys and girls from age 3 to Grade 6 the highest quality education in a warm and caring environment. We provide children the guidance, challenge, and support they need to develop as successful learners and good people.

At NPS we celebrate childhood, the time of life when the greatest leaps of learning occur. Childhood gets our full attention, and our faculty and staff are experts at helping children learn and grow - intellectually, socially, emotionally, and spiritually - during these vitally important years.

We challenge students with an engaging academic program that blends tradition and innovation. We embrace important Core Values that help students learn and practice what it means to live morally and ethically. And we create a learning environment where children feel loved and respected.

When they graduate, NPS students go on to achieve enviable success. Our exceptional outplacement record speaks for itself: NPS graduates routinely gain acceptance to - and thrive at - leading middle and high schools in the Washington, DC, area and beyond.
