St. Jane de Chantal is a Catholic, co-ed elementary school in Bethesda, MD. We are celebrating our 70th school year in 2023-24. Throughout the last seven decades, De Chantal teachers and families have educated and raised children as a community and look forward to continuing this tradition. We will use this school year to discover our history and celebrate our future. 

The school has two classrooms per grade and an average of 20 students in each classroom. In recognition of academic excellence, The U.S. Department of Education has twice named De Chantal a Blue Ribbon School.  

Although academics are a priority and teachers are dedicated to the educational success of each child, we also value and educate the whole child. De Chantal recognizes that our students will spend their childhood with us, and we strive to cultivate a sense of curiosity and discovery in the children.  

Through proud traditions and a close, caring community, De Chantal educates students with strong values and academic excellence. De Chantal is the school where your child will grow in spirit and mind, the school where your child will be known and loved and the school where you can be involved.
