At Glenelg Country School, we see the greatness within your child and we nurture it. We encourage our students to find their passions and to develop them with the mentorship of our experienced and dedicated faculty. We challenge students to strive for excellence and value hard work. Our mission is to discover each student’s unique voice and vision.

We create an educational experience for every child
  • Where excellence matters;
  • That balances academics, the arts, and athletics to bring out their best;
  • Where habits of service, leadership and friendship will last a lifetime;
  • Where the world is their classroom.
This is a community where two-year-olds and eighteen-year-olds share the same campus and values. We invite you to schedule a personal tour, or take a look at our Student Life pages to see what life is like at Glenelg Country School.

Glenelg Country School offers bus transportation! At this time, round trip services service: Clarksville, Columbia Town Center, Elkridge, Ellicott City, Fulton, Glenwood, Laurel, Mount Airy, Olney, and Woodstock. To learn more, please follow this link.

Registration for this event is encouraged. We begin at 9:00 a.m. and tours typically conclude between 10:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m., depending upon how many divisions you wish to visit.
