“Siena, in my professional and parental opinion, does the best job in the greater DC area in working with kids with language-based learning differences.  Siena is extremely focused on addressing the learning issues / executive functioning difficulties and differences as a part of ‘this is what you do to succeed.’” - Area psychologist and parent of Siena alumnus    

The mission of The Siena School is to provide an outstanding education to bright, college-bound students with language-based learning differences. We have developed an educational program and learning environment specifically designed for the unique needs of these students. Therefore, our program is most appropriate for students that exhibit all of the following characteristics:
  • Are bright, college-bound students.  
  • Have mild to moderate language-based learning needs.
  • Are of average to above-average abilities.
  • Are emotionally healthy and behaviorally appropriate.  
Over the past ten years, Siena has changed the lives of hundreds of students and families in the greater metropolitan DC area.  Siena’s rapid growth has been attributed to our focused mission, outstanding experiential programming, and retention of families each year.

Siena is a place where students enjoy learning and never hesitate to ask great questions. We welcome you to discover and learn about our nurturing but rigorous learning environment while hearing from our students in the online viewbook below.
