FALL 2018



Ambleside School is moving to McLean, Fall of 2018!  

The new school site is conveniently located near Tysons Corner, easily accessible from the Toll Road and right off Leesburg Pike, at 8980 Brook Road, McLean, VA  22102.

Since it first opened its doors in 1999, Ambleside has gained a reputation among area high schools for developing thoughtful, curious young people of character and conviction.  Year after year, students have discovered their unlimited capacity for the knowledge found in good books, careful observation, intentional work, and free time out of doors.  

Now, Ambleside has outgrown its space, and is moving to Providence Baptist Church in the fall of 2018.  We will always be a small school, no more than 16 per class, but we will have room to grow and modern, light-filled classrooms to better educate our students.   

Here are some highlights of our new campus:    

  • Larger classrooms with natural light

  • Breakout rooms for science labs, art classes, and small instructional groups.

  • A library to hold our collection of classic literature

  • Open playgrounds for recess, wooded areas for nature study

  • A large worship/community space for our annual, signature events - Veterans Chapel, Christmas Candlelight Service, and Shakespeare Festival  

  • Gym, kitchen and parlor to be used occasionally for community dinners, study groups, and Moms in Touch. 

Please, come visit us for our next School Tour (first Wednesday of every month) at 9:30 am or email us to arrange an observation.  

Join us for our Open House on Sunday, January 21st, at 3 p.m. to learn more!

Ambleside is a unique school, and was the perfect fit for my kids - the staff is amazing!
