Capitol Hill Learning Group

Capitol Hill Learning Group (CHLG) offers teacher-led classes... beginning at 2.5 years and includes a teacher-led cooperative for primary aged students that combines classroom based education with home based education. We're a cooperative program, and parents contribute by assisting in their child's classroom on a rotating basis and by volunteering in other capacities to help keep the school running smoothly. CHLG is faith-based in the Christian tradition, and while we are organized in such a way that there is freedom to talk about God, Jesus Christ and the Bible, we welcome families from other faiths as well as families who do not consider themselves religious. CHLG's preschool program provides curriculum for all areas of a child's growth- physical, emotional, spiritual, social, linguistic, aesthetic and cognitive. We focus on what is familiar to children and on creative play through which children learn social roles, cooperation and problem solving. Children learn through experimenting, observing, wondering, exploring and questioning. Our curriculum seeks to provide children with the skills that will both help them learn as well as develop a love for learning. We promote a child's inner drive and excitement about learning as they use and apply knowledge, process and skills. The Hybrid Academy at CHLG is a unique primary schooling opportunity that pairs classroom learning with home based education, allowing for a rigorous academic program that can be tailored to the individual child's strengths and needs. Our Hybrid model consists of small classes (10 children maximum) taught by professional teachers. Classes meet on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9:00-1:00. Our teachers partner with parents in the education of the child by providing consults on an as needed basis and by regular written communication regarding assignments to be completed at home on non-class days (Mondays and Wednesdays).

Christian Family Montessori School

Over three decades ago, a small group of parents desired a school for... their children where the teachers would treat the students respectfully, as human beings loved by God, as well as nurturing them academically. Christian Family Montessori School opened in September of 1981 with 12 students, meeting in the living room of Catherine and Charley Maresca. Rebekah Rojcewicz was their teacher, called to our school from her study in Rome with Sofia Cavalletti, initiator of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. In March 1982 CFMS made its home at St. James Catholic Church in Mt. Rainier, MD where it would remain for nearly 30 years. During those years the school added a second Primary class and two Elementary classes serving children from age 2 1/2 through 12 year olds in the sixth grade. In June 2012 CFMS moved to its present home located at St. Paul's Rock Creek Episcopal Parish surrounded by the beautiful grounds of the historic Rock Creek Church Cemetery. As the school celebrated its 30th year, it also was able to offer both Traditional and All-Day Primary Montessori programs to provide various scheduling options for families including half-day and full-day classes between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. The two Elementary classes have a full school day from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. with the option of Elementary Extended care until 6:00 p.m. Through its growth and in various locations, the school has maintained its founding vision of providing an education that nourishes children in body, mind, and spirit. Since its opening, CFMS has offered financial assistance in an effort to serve an economically diverse community of families. The Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) recognizes Christian Family Montessori School as a recognized A.M.I. Montessori School at the Primary and Elementary levels.
