Washington Jesuit Academy

Our Mission is to educate academically talented adolescent boys from low-income families, regardless of religious denomination, providing for them a disciplined, rigorous learning environment.

The Goal of the Education is to prepare these boys to become "men for others" who, having gained confidence spiritually, intellectually, emotionally and physically will be able to succeed in a college preparatory high school on their way to becoming leaders in their communities.


Cornerstone School of Washington, DC

Cornerstone provides an academically rigorous education founded on a Christian world view, in a manner that fosters a lifelong love of learning.  Cornerstone fosters a student culture of mutual respect in which moral character is developed based on Biblical principles. Cornerstone equips students to participate in and transform the society in which they live.   Cornerstone seeks to represent and be economically accessible to the community it serves, with its racial, economic, and social diversity. Cornerstone recognizes the primary responsibility of parents in the educational process and seeks to partner with them to provide the best education possible. Cornerstone seeks to foster a sense of community among parents, staff, students, volunteers and participating partners and churches.
