As a school of inquiry, innovation and impact, The Mount Vernon School continues to reimagine what school is and does. For over a decade, we have been on a transformational journey and can empathize with the opportunities and challenges you are navigating. Join us on campus and experience Mount Vernon with our expert faculty and staff.
On this full-day of expeditionary professional learning, you will join members of the Mount Vernon team for deeper learning and connect with expert practitioners through two distinct learning experiences:
Experience how The Mount Vernon School designs relevant, transformational curricular and learning competencies from Preschool through Upper School, explored through an inquiry-based approach and assessed on levels of proficiency.
