Company Profile
Barrie is a co-educational, independent
day school serving 320 students from Primary/
Early Childhood through Grade 12. Founded
in 1932, Barrie is one of the oldest progressive
schools in the Washington, DC area. The school is
accredited by the Association of Independent
Maryland Schools and the Middle States
Association of College and Schools.
Barrie students and faculty reflect the cultural,
economic, linguistic, and religious diversity of the
Greater Washington area and the world as a
whole. As of the 2017-2018 school year, Barrie
School’s demographic makeup was
approximately: 60% students of color, 35%
Caucasian/Non-Hispanic, and 5%
international. Barrie’s programs and resources
provide both intellectual rigor and academic
support to a diverse community of learners with a
wide range of strengths and talents.
Approximately 40% of our students
receive financial aid and there are 21
students in the class of 2018.
MISSION
Empower individuals to expand their intellectual
abilities, develop their creative talents, and discover
their passions to make a positive impact in a rapidly
changing world.
FACULTY
The Barrie Prep student-to-faculty ratio is 10:1 and
the majority of our faculty members hold advanced
degrees.
CURRICULUM
Barrie offers a rigorous academic program
anchored in the Essential Capacities for the
21st Century. Students acquire their learning
through a thematically based curriculum
focusing on Discovery and Invention and
Diplomacy and Global Issues.

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS
The curriculum pivots on a wide range of courses and
experi- ences both on and off-campus. The vast majority
of students exceed these minimums. The following
courses and experien- tial programs are required for
graduation:
 Humanities (8 credits)
 Mathematics (4 credits)
 Science (4 credits)
 World Language (3 credits)
 Electives (8 credits)
 Physical Education (1 credit equal to either 2 of 3
seasons or two trimesters per year)
 Health (0.33 credit)
 Extended Study Week (participation requirement)
 Community Service (completion requirement)
 Internship Program (completion requirement)
ADVANCED PLACEMENT COURSES
The Upper School currently offers the following
Advanced Placement course opportunities: Calculus AB,
Chemistry, Statistics, Physics 1, Environmental
Science, Psychology, French Language and Culture, and
Spanish Language and Culture. AP Physics and AP
Chemistry alternate years and AP Psychology and AP
Environmental Science are taught every other year.
HUMANITIES CURRICULUM
The Humanities curriculum is a distinctive Barrie
academic experience that combines the study of English,
history, politi- cal science, philosophy, comparative religion,
and art history. These double credit courses offer greater
depth and intellectual challenge for students than
traditional English, history, and social science courses
taught separately in most schools. The four-year cycle of
required courses includes: American Studies (Grade 9),
Early World Studies (Grade 10), Modern World Studies
(Grade 11) and America in the World (Grade 12).
EXTENDED STUDY WEEK
Each spring, students participate in experiential
academic programs connected to the thematic curricula.
With addi- tional focus on one or many aspects of their
Barrie education,
including community service, cultural studies, or
environmental education, students’ opportunities embed a
service component during and community presentation
following their experi- ences. Recent programs have
included service and cultural im- mersion in Thailand,
studying the fragile Everglades in Florida
or Amazonian rain forest, glass-making and French Film.
COMMUNITY SERVICE AND INTERNSHIP PROGRAMS
All students participating in Barrie’s community service and
internship programs complete a range of pre and post reflective exercises.
