Military Families

We decided on Browne Academy because it met all of our wants and needs. And, we quickly realized that it exceeded all of our expectations. After 13 years, we are still very happy with our decision and it has truly been wonderful for both our children and our family. We have made great friends and found the community to be extremely cohesive and supportive. Similar to what we do in the Military, they come together to help when families are in need and the community has supported us during our deployments. Friends, community, safety and great academics – it’s hard to ask for much more in a school.

Browne Academy welcomes and supports our military students and their families from Fort Belvoir, the Pentagon, Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, the U.S. Coast Guard Station, Fort Myers, and other military facilities throughout the Washington, D.C. area.

Our Director of Admission and Enrollment Management, John Bonhom, serves as the points of contact for our military families and works closely with our school counselor and division heads to provide support to help your military child with concerns such as transitioning to a new school and other related PCS challenges, apprehensions during periods of separation of a deployed parent, as well as other related military life/student life concerns.

Our Student Ambassador members make up our student transition team for military families, assisting with open house tours and helping with student visitors. Our Parents Association is very active and dedicated to enhancing the growth and development of the Browne Academy community through volunteer opportunities and programs.
