Archbishop Neale School is a private Catholic elementary school located in La Plata, Maryland. We provide a two-track system for grades K through 8, and classes for Pre-K 3 and Pre-K 4 and our curriculum is centered on the Archdiocese of Washington graded course of study. Departments are organized as follows: Primary (Grades Pre-K – 3); Intermediate (Grades 4-5); Junior High (Grades 6-8). Grades 6-8 are departmentalized. We are fully accredited, and our teachers are certified by the State of Maryland in their specific areas. As a consolidated school, we serve students from eight local Catholic parishes. as well as students from several outlying parishes in Southern Maryland and Virginia, and many local non-Catholic students. Since 1927, parents have entrusted their children to Archbishop Neale School because they are assured of an excellent, Archdiocesan standards based academic curriculum that encompasses the Catholic faith and values, and is delivered in a safe, caring environment.
