The World of FAB
Founded in 1975, The Family Academy of Bethesda started as a ‘home’ that took care of infants in the nearby neighborhoods of Bethesda. The once ‘family daycare’ still remains in its original home and office. Hence the name ‘Family Academy’. As more and more children enrolled, the ‘family’ grew to become a ‘center’. In 1999, the Montessori Method was introduced, and Family Academy graduated to a Private School, approved by the Maryland Department of Education in 2000.
The program was so successful that the school had to expand beyond the premises of 4324 Montgomery Avenue to accommodate the growing waitlist.
