School for Tomorrow (SFT) is a groundbreaking, model independent nonprofit school serving a diversity of D.C.-area students in grades 4–12 in Rockville, Maryland.
SFT is a school unlike any other. Education experts, informed by extensive research, have been increasingly writing and talking about the paradigm-shifting school of the future that our nation needs as soon as possible, one that effectively provides the education necessary for today’s youth to thrive in the rapidly changing adult world they’ll be entering. SFT is committed to creating that school of the future — now. Accordingly, SFT students learn what’s necessary to achieve success and satisfaction in today’s and tomorrow’s world, and they learn in ways and in a structure that optimizes each student’s development, accomplishment, and growth. In short, SFT is providing a relevant, customized, holistic education for all students — and the results are extraordinary!
SFT has been highlighted in articles in The Washington Post and the Gazette. It has also been recognized as a model school on the website connected with the education-focused documentary Race to Nowhere. Founder and Head of School Alan Shusterman has been interviewed on the local cable show Forward Motion as well as on Parents’ Perspective, an award-winning weekly radio program which airs on radio stations across the country. He has been also interviewed by the website Stop Homework.
SFT holds open houses throughout the year, for it is only through seeing SFT firsthand that you can begin to truly understand what separates us from all other schools.
