Albert Einstein is part of the Downcounty Consortium (DCC). Students who reside within the DCC boundaries participate in the Choice process. Students and parents rank their preferred high schools for school assignment and are assigned to one of 5 high schools via lottery: Montgomery Blair, Albert Einstein, John F. Kennedy, Northwood or Wheaton. The DCC website describes programs at the five schools and the Choice process.
Einstein offers 4 academies: Academy of Finance, Business Management and Marketing, part of the National Academy Foundation; International Baccalaureate (IB) Program; Renaissance Academy; and the Academy of Visual and Performing Arts. The academies are committed to providing a meaningful, student-centered and challenging high school experience while preparing students for postsecondary education and a variety of career choices. Students have many opportunities to explore their interests while making real-world connections.
