The Potomac Difference

Mission and Values

At The Potomac School, we believe that intellectual development, love of learning, and strength of character are complementary and equally essential educational goals. With a firm commitment to our core values and a rigorous academic program, we prepare students to lead lives of purpose, achievement, and generosity of spirit.

Summer@Potomac builds on this mission and embraces The Potomac School core values of courage, integrity, humility, perseverance and respect. Our programs are designed to invigorate and challenge campers, helping them continue to grow into confident, compassionate and curious individuals.

We are committed to respecting and celebrating diversity. The members of our community represent a wide variety of backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives, and we believe that the presence of diverse voices and viewpoints enriches the Potomac experience for everyone.
