School for Tomorrow (SFT) is an independent nonprofit secondary school serving D.C.-area students in grades 5–12 in Rockville, Maryland. At SFT, children learn what they need to in order to achieve success in today’s and tomorrow’s world, and they learn in ways and in a structure that optimizes their development, accomplishment, and growth. SFT is taking generalized education to a new level of customization with extraordinary results.
So many parents are struggling to find the right education for their children, believing that there has to be something better than what they have seen in existing public and private schools. They are finding the answer at SFT. Our curriculum is directly tied to college and the real world, and it provides students with practical skills to navigate the future; what our students learn is completely relevant to life beyond high school.
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 and around the world. 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.
