Seneca Academy is nondenominational and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, or national origin in the admission of children. Seneca Academy seeks to admit students who will benefit from its philosophy, values and program. Previous school records, teacher recommendations and the applicant’s visit to our school help us assess the child’s ability and readiness to succeed within our classroom community of learners. Preference will be given to eligible candidates who attend Seneca preschool and their siblings.

The parent’s understanding and support of Seneca Academy’s philosophy and curriculum are necessary as we consider parents our partners in the education of their children.

Please visit an Open House to view our school, talk with our staff, and learn more about our programs. Parents of K-5 applicants may call 301-869-3728 to schedule a tour.
