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. 




Due to the current pandemic, St. Bartholomew School campus is closed.  Our highly ranked distance learning program will continue through June 5, 2020.

We continue to accept applications for the 2020-2021 school year.  To speak with a member of our Admissions team, about virtual tours, online admissions events, or wait list availability please e-mail
