From Severn School

At Severn, we believe there are many ways to lead, and that every student has the potential to be exceptional.

Students at Severn School are empowered to develop the character, skills and intellectual agility that is required of today's leaders. What you will learn here is that education is about more than what you know. Instead, it's about who you are. And who we are is a student-centered learning community committed to modeling excellence, courage and scholarship as we strive to make meaningful contributions to the world around us.

Severn School is located approximately six miles from Annapolis on two separate campuses in Arnold and Severna Park, Maryland. Severn School was originally founded in 1914 to provide academic preparation for the United States Naval Academy. Today we are a day school enrolling nearly 1000 students from preschool through 12th grade.

The Van Eney '09 Fellows Program

academic spotlight

Seniors at Severn have the opportunity to pursue a year-long passion project. The Fellows project represents learning for learning’s sake, as students explore new ideas and interests for the purest reasons - to gain knowledge and experience. Students are supported by mentors as they work towards key milestones, and responding to challenges that arise is as important as the final product.
