Independent Education

Using a range of educational approaches and strategies, the 75+ member schools of AISGW educate 33,000 students from early childhood through high school, offering families in the greater Washington, DC area a rich mix of educational options. We welcome new members from throughout the national capital region.

After extensive engagement of member school heads, the Board of Independent Education voted unanimously on May 7, 2015, to change the name of the association back to the Association of Independent Schools of Greater Washington, or AISGW.  The Board and staff are in the process of taking appropriate legal and other steps to implement this change.  Although the association will begin using the name Association of Independent Schools of Greater Washington effective immediately, it will take some time to revise all content and materials.  AISGW appreciates your patience during this process.
