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.
