NCS is more than a place for skill-based learning, it’s a place where you will also uncover and shape who you are, what you need, how you relate to others, and so much more.
We are an independent girls' school for grades 4-12 and we believe in the power of young women.
Situated on the grounds of the Washington National Cathedral, a calm space of green within our bustling and busy Nation’s Capital, NCS’s highly curated environment helps each student believe in her individual power and learn to use it to actively engage in any pursuit with excellence, service, courage, and conscience.
To help each student unlock her power, we’ve designed an experience grounded in a profoundly relational way of teaching.
At NCS, whether she is in Lower School (grades 4 through 6), Middle School (grades 7 and 8), or Upper School (grades 9 through 12), a student both learns a skill and also questions, tries, and internalizes it for herself.
