About Us

The Maddux School is a small, private, general-education school specializing in providing quality early-childhood education to students ages four to eight who may have experienced language and social challenges in prior school placements.  With small classes and a total student-body of under 55 children, we provide individualized programming, support and close parental guidance throughout each grade and as children transition to other schools. 

We opened in 2004 as The Katherine Maddux Early Learning Center with one pre-school class of eight children.  While we have expanded to include four classes:  Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, First Grade and Second Grade, we maintain our close-knit community of teachers and families whose goal is to instill a love of learning and prepare students for future academic environments.

Independently licensed under the Maryland State Department of Education and the Maryland State Office of Child Care, The Maddux School operates under the administrative auspices of Ivymount Corporation, a 501-c-3 organization.
