Hoe to Apply to Potomac

The Application Process

Thank you for your interest in The Potomac School. Our application portal is now closed for the 2024-25 school year. We will be offering spring tours, and you can register through Ravenna starting early April. We encourage you to explore our website and learn more about the school.
