The Face of Neuro-Diverse Education

Erick Johnson, Head of School | The Howard Gardner School

The Howard Gardner School is an intentionally small, independent, experiential school serving grades 6-12 on two campuses (Alexandria and Fairfax-Loudoun). Our mission is to help bright, creative, non-traditional learners use their unique strengths to thrive academically, intellectually and emotionally.

With a proven record of success, our students collaborate in their education and pursue hands-on, university prep academics, service learning, professional internships and field studies in an effort to contribute to and learn from a diverse school community.

We are proud and grateful to serve our mission for students in grades 6-8 and 9-12 on our Alexandria Campus, and we’re humbled to be opening our Fairfax-Loudoun Campus this fall for students in grades 9-12 for the 2022-2023 school year.
