School Notes:

  • The mission of the Congressional Schools of Virginia is to prepare children, through an innovative and accelerated curriculum, to embrace the opportunities and responsibilities they will face as global citizens. We seek to provide a safe and stimulating environment in which children can develop academically, physically, creatively, socially, and emotionally; foster a climate which emphasizes traditional values of citizenship, service, personal responsibility, self-discipline, and respect and compassion for others; challenge students with an accelerated, interactive, and age-appropriate curriculum; provide supporting educational materials and integrate technology throughout the curriculum; maintain a structure and philosophy which assures attention to the unique needs of each child; attract and retain outstanding teachers who actively pursue on-going professional development; sustain a partnership between school and home in the education of the children; encourage all parents to play an active role in the life of the schools; take advantage of the many opportunities afforded by the diverse character of the Schools and of the surrounding metropolitan area; and acknowledge each child's special gifts and contributions.
