Queen of Apostles takes faith and academics very seriously. The Catholic faith is taught in a holistic way to each grade, incorporating all the teachings, feasts and fasts of the liturgical year in an engaging way and connecting them to everyday life. Because it is a small school, it has a wonderful teacher/student ratio, allowing students to get the individualized attention and direction they need, though there might not be as many resources and programs as are available at a public school. The student body is extremely diverse, representing countries from all over the world. Teachers take their jobs of molding students' minds, souls, and hearts very seriously. We've been very happy here, with children in both elementary and middle school.

I have two children at Queen of Apostles School. My oldest (our third) graduated in June. They have all received an incredible education and my oldest tells us daily how Queen of Apostles School prepared her to be successful in high school. The teachers are dedicated, professional, and care about developing the whole person - not just the academic performance of their students. Our kids all participated in Tennis, Basketball, Cross Country and band. Whether you plan to make the Alexandria area your home or are just here for 3-4 year orders, you and your children will benefit from the time spent at QofA.

Sending your child to a single-sex school is one of several options you have when it comes to private schools.
Each state sets its own teacher certification requirements. While many private schools do not require you to be certified, it is in your best interests to obtain certification. This article includes contact information for state education offices so you can begin the process.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
