Our Philosophy

Service Leadership

The community of students and faculty mentors will challenge and support one another while learning, sharing, exploring, and serving together. Service and leadership opportunities will be driven by the individual passions and interests of students. As they take on the responsibility of leadership for their individual service projects, they will be guided by the philosophy of Servant Leadership.

Entrepreneurial Thinking and STEM

While many schools emphasize science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education (STEM) we believe a fifth discipline, entrepreneurship, needs to be added to leverage the value of theoretical STEM skills. Entrepreneurial thinking skills enable our students to connect their STEM knowledge with real-world problems. The fusion of STEM with the entrepreneurial spirit – understanding and applying the innovative process – will allow Washington Preparatory School graduates to become leaders and influencers in business, education, and the social sector. Science – Technology – Entrepreneurship – Engineering – Mathematics (STEEM)

Experiential Learning

Our experiential education program provides our students with learning-based experiences that build knowledge, self-confidence, teamwork, leadership, and responsibility. Through activities that extend the academic curriculum beyond the four walls of the classroom, we prepare our students for life beyond our doors.

International and Intercultural Understanding

Our students will cultivate a diverse world-view and appreciation for the world’s peoples and cultures via academic endeavors and personal experiences. Through classrooms, in-home exchange programs, and international travel experiences, students form an international and intercultural understanding that will give them the ability to contribute to our global society.

Academic Excellence

By creating a shared expectation between students and the school to strive for personal growth and academic excellence, we help students become independent thinkers whose curiosity, creativity, and commitment bring life-long success.

Accreditation

Everyday at Washington Preparatory School is like a blessing with our active students and talented staff.
