St. Bartholomew School is a Catholic, co-educational, Pre-Kindergarten through 8th Grade school, located just inside the beltway in Bethesda, Maryland.  We prepare our students to be active global citizens who live the Word of God and who are ready to meet the challenges of the 21st century.  Come see the big impact our small class sizes, traditional values, and innovative teaching methods have each day. 




Your child's safety and wellbeing is at the forefront of our decision making as we prepare our campus for a full re-opening in August.  A comprehensive guide outlining new policies and procedures will become available soon!   


To comply with social distancing we have made the difficult decision to reduce class sizes.  To speak with a member of our Admissions team about availability or waitlists, please e-mail
