The Tome School

Tel: (410)287-2050
  • The Tome School is an independent, coeducational, college preparatory school founded in 1889 by Port Deposit philanthropist Jacob Tome.
  • The school's curriculum provides a broad liberal arts education for students from kindergarten through twelfth grade in an environment emphasizing academic success, high standards of personal behavior, and full participation in school life.
  • For a student to be successful at Tome, parents must hold similar expectations and standards.
  • The curriculum differs in important respects, and in rigor, from that of typical American elementary and secondary education.
  • Tome is organized into three divisions: the Lower School, comprised of Kindergarten and the first four grades, the Middle School, grades five through eight, and the Upper School with grades nine through twelve.
