Thank you for your interest in Barrie School! Our extraordinary environment for learning serves students from age 18 months - Grade 5 in our Montessori program, and Grades 6-12 in our project based learning program. Barrie students are encouraged to develop their own individual interests and talents through hands-on, experiential learning.
Once you step onto our beautiful 45-acre wooded campus in Silver Spring, Maryland, you’ll experience a compelling sense of student engagement.

Barrie offers a Sibling Discount. The eldest child pays full tuition, the second, younger, child receives a 5% discount, and a 10% discount is received on all other children thereafter. This is separate program from Financial Aid.
Example, 4 siblings are enrolled in grades 10, 8, 5, and 1. 10th grader pays full tuition, 8th grader receives a 5% discount, and the 5th and 1st graders receive a 10% discount.
