Merritt Academy is one of three sister schools in Northern Virginia that are operated by the J127 Education Foundation. First Steps Academy and Appletree School share Merritt Academy's dedication to early-childhood education in an intimate learning environment.
Merritt Academy provides care and education for infants through 8th-grade students. Our seven-acre campus neighbors Sunrise Assisted Living of Fairfax and The Virginian help provide meaningful intergenerational opportunities for our children. Rigorous academics are enhanced by our values-driven Character Education program. Students from ages 2-5 visit Merritt's unique preschool STEAM lab while kindergarten students participate in the weekly Genius Hour.
Full-day service is provided for all early childhood students through preschool. Kindergarteners and older students may register for extended service which includes developmentally appropriate activities such as recess/recreation time or supervised study hall with Merritt faculty.
Merritt Academy also offers a fun-filled summer camp program for kindergartners through rising 10th graders. We have an outdoor in-ground pool to provide on-site swimming experiences, and we feature a variety of exciting field trips to supplement the camp activities.
Our caring and dedicated faculty consider each child to be a unique individual with special skills and talents which are recognized and nurtured. Parents are encouraged to work in partnership with teachers and administrators to provide an environment full of rich experiences, lasting relationships, and high educational goals.
