Dedicated to Young Learners

From cradle to grade 8, the students of Congressional benefit from a clear and constant focus on them and their needs. It's an exuberant, intimate, safe learning environment, where kids can be kids, parents can be involved, and everyone can be seen and heard.

Advantages of a K-8 School

The infant-Grade 8 environment, where middle schoolers make a transition after Grade 8, provides tremendous opportunities. Choosing where to go next is probably the first big decision for students. It enables them to ponder who they are and the kind of environment that best suits them, at an age that is appropriate for them to begin contemplating those types of questions. It is like a trial run for college admissions, giving them confidence when that time comes.

Top 5 Reasons to Attend a K-8 School

#1:  Congressional's Infant - Grade 8 model allows students to remain children for longer, without the influences or pressures of high school.

#2:  As an Infant - Grade 8 school, we are able to cultivate a close-knit community, where everyone knows one another. The result is greater confidence, self-esteem, and a sense of belonging; all of which are important during a child's formative years.

#3:  By the end of grade 8, Congressional students are eager for the opportunity to reinvent themselves as young adults. With a strong foundation of learning and friendship, high school becomes a new and exciting chapter in their lives.

#4:  At the end of Grade 8, a student's strengths are more clearly defined, along with their emerging personality, and often a passion for a certain subject. This makes it much easier to determine the best "match" for high school.

#5:  Our Middle School students are not "caught in the middle;" instead they assume early leadership responsibilities such as student council officers, varsity sports team players, and yearbook editors. They are the role models for the entire student body, which builds their confidence and helps for a smooth transition to high school.

Good Morning, Friends!

In our Early Childhood building, each child is greeted every morning by name and asked about their morning or weekend to get a personal connection and to know each individual child. Parents are talked to at drop off and pickup about their child to make them feel secure about the day.

What's the SeeSaw App?

SeeSaw is a an app, a webpage, a social communication glimpse into the school day for our Primary School (Preschool - Grade 2) parents. Made personal, parents are tagged in images of their child enjoying the school day and projects happening in the classroom. This added touch adds that sense of involvement and joy in an image of their child during posted to their private account during the day.

Clubs During the School Day

We love that each student is an individual with their own interests and passions. Because of this, middle school clubs are offered during the school day by teachers who share their interests. Love ceramics? Want to start your own business? Care a lot about the environment? Is drama your thing? There's a club for that!

Buddy Days

Every preschool - grade 8 student is paired with a buddy for the entire school year to get to know, play with, and do fun activities with during dedicated buddy times. Younger grades love the attention from the older students and older students are step up and carry themselves as role models. It allows everyone to be the kids they are and really make our whole campus feel like a family.

Straight from Our Faculty

We asked our teachers to think about ways they see "Dedicated to Young Learners" in their classrooms and around our school and jot down quick notes for discussion. Here's a glimpse at a few of them...
