Our Lady Star of the Sea School, established in 1933, belongs to the Archdiocese of Washington and is a fully accredited private Catholic school for pre-K through eighth grade. Its mission is carried out in a Catholic atmosphere, which promotes the spiritual, intellectual, emotional and physical development of each child. Small class sizes enable teachers to deal with students as individuals and work to meet their needs. By teaching morals and values, teachers develop a sense of personal responsibility and encourage leadership skills that help make students responsible adults. Students in the higher grades participate in a number of roles that support the school and mentor younger students, and help teach them the importance of responsibility and helping others. The school believes that through a solid Catholic education, which incorporates instruction, discipline, responsibility, respect and Christian example, students will have a strong foundation on which to build their lives.
