St. Jane de Chantal is a Catholic, Coeducational Elementary School. And we have been educating children in suburban Maryland for over 70 years. We have two classrooms per grade and average of 20 students in each classroom. In recognition of academic excellence, The US 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 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 through 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.
