President's Welcome

Welcome to our website and to Waterfront Academy! I hope you find this site helpful in learning more about the school.

 

As you will learn, Waterfront Academy offers a rigorous and robust education for children. The environment and culture at Waterfront Academy is carefully crafted to foster learning  through exploration. Through this exploration we find that the sky's the limit when it comes to each individual child academic achievements. We often find that our students are one, two, and sometimes three grades ahead of their peers at traditional schools.

 

We are the only school in the United States that offers all three of the following aspects:  adherence to Dr. Maria Montessori's philosophy and pedagogy, second language acquisition through immersion, and religious faith.

 

Waterfront Academy was inspired from elements of my own life: faith, family, and desire for a better school option in Washington, DC. It is important to me that children have a robust education, one that sets up the next generation for success in the global economy. With all the advances in technology our world is getting smaller and the need to be globally competitive is greater. Additionally, children of this technologically advanced society are going to need to be stronger in their convictions; something that I believe happens through the formation of faith. 

I am sincerely proud of our teachers, staff, students, parents, and the entire Waterfront Academy community for their commitment towards the collective vision of excellence and achievement.

Thank you very much for visiting our website. I encourage you to take the next step and visit Waterfront Academy to see firsthand how your child and your family fits within our community. Please call (202) 484-0044 or email me to learn more.

God bless you and yours,

Melissa Rohan
