From The Madeira School

The Madeira School is an independent, college preparatory boarding and day school for girls in grades 9-12, located on a scenic 376-acre campus just miles from Washington, DC. Our award-winning Co-Curriculum experiential learning program provides internships similar to those offered by colleges. For five weeks each year, girls learn from experience in settings beyond the classroom. Sophomores engage in service, juniors serve on Capitol Hill, and seniors pursue a career interest or passion. Over their four years, Madeira graduates build confidence, leadership skills, and an impressive resume.
