AIMS schools from various regions of Maryland and DC will be available to meet with prospective families to answer questions about the admissions process, scholarship and financial aid, the mission and culture that is unique to each independent school and your next steps in joining the AIMS school community!
Each day of the fair will be devoted to schools located in various geographic regions of MD and DC. Please see the list of schools that will be available on each night of the program (as not ALL AIMS schools are participating in the fair).
The event will start at 4:00 pm and is scheduled to run until 6:00 pm. It will start with a welcome from Peter Baily, Executive Director of AIMS and a parent-to-parent message on the value of an independent school to your children and your family!
Families will then have an opportunity to talk directly to school representatives. The “visit school” sessions are repeated opportunities so you will have a chance to visit at least three schools during the fair.

Association of Independent Maryland & DC Schools
AIMS is a nonprofit association of independent schools in Maryland and Washington, DC. Founded in 1967, the association’s mission is to serve independent schools by providing accreditation services, public advocacy, and networking opportunities to the member school communities as well as outstanding professional development for their faculty, staff, administrators, and trustees. AIMS currently has 120 member schools, serving over 45,000 students.
Independent schools are rooted in the idea of choice. They offer families a range of educational options: coeducation or single sex; religious affiliation or nonsectarian; preschool, elementary, or secondary; day or boarding; and each has a distinct educational philosophy and mission. For everyone involved, an independent school is a conscious choice. Principals and teachers choose to work there and are highly committed to the school’s mission and dedicated to serving the needs of each child. Families choose independent schools because they care about their children’s education and support their schools enthusiastically.
