About Us

Since its founding in 1995, KTS has earned a solid reputation for providing an exceptional educational experience to children language and learning disabilities, autism, intellectual disabilities, and/or other health impairments. We serve over 130 students in preschool through 12th grade , both publicly funded and privately paying, from Maryland, DC and Northern Virginia. Over the years, we have significantly expanded our services and programs to better serve our students and lay the foundation for them to successfully begin independent adult lives.

Our language-intensive curriculum includes the full range of courses mandated by the State of Maryland or other funding jurisdictions. We make extensive use classroom technology and assistive technology, and our 50,000 square foot school is home to a Black Box Theatre, two music rooms, three fully equipped OT gyms, a teaching kitchen, and two art classrooms with a kiln.

Admissions are on a rolling basis throughout the year, and financial aid is available to qualifying families.  During the academic year, we have monthly Open Houses for interested families to come and experience our wonderful school firsthand. The Katherine Thomas School also offers summer enrichment programs.
