To create a model academic institution that prepares students to be socially responsible, well-rounded leaders who can compete at any level and in any setting


The Mitchellville School , a not-for-profit, private/independent school, provides a K-6, co-educational instructional program that promotes positive self-concept and character development in children. The Mitchellville School offers highly individualized, rigorous, year-round, innovative studies for students who can benefit from such a program. Its uncommonly excellent teachers nurture the development of the whole child, respect individual differences, and instill in children a love for learning during the early years. The Mitchellville School is slated to be the only independent, year-round, mathematics, science, and technology-focused school in the metropolitan area or region. Through its partnership with the Mitchellville Community School of the Arts (MCSA), its students develop a natural appreciation for the arts. The MCSA provides weekly art/music class instruction and after-school, onsite, private individual/group instrumental music and band instruction.
