The DMV Independent School Fair was born from the desire to help families seeking small school settings that were both academically rigorous and flexible enough to adapt to the current pandemic. Templeton Academy recognized the need facing so many families in the DMV and partnered with Friends Community School and Capitol Learning Academy to help launch the inaugural event on October 24, 2020. The Nora School and Oneness-Family Montessori School have since joined our organizing team as well.
More families than ever before are seeking affordable school solutions. With over 100 private schools in the DMV area, it would take a full-time job to research them all and find the right fit for your child. The DMV Small Schools Fair makes it convenient to learn about small school options for elementary, middle, and high schools from the safety of your own home and on a single weekend day.
We are the only school fair in the area dedicated to showcasing innovative and independent small schools in the DMV for elementary through high school. Families who attend the DMV Independent Small Schools Fair are specifically interested in learning about schools like yours. This fair will give you the opportunity to share your unique programing with families and educational consultants seeking to learn more about small schools and the admissions process.
Thank you to our sponsor schools, who make this event possible.
