We are pleased to offer the Etiquette Institute of Washington’s Finishing School centered on the French principle of le savoir vivre, translated as “knowledge of life”. The program graduates young ladies who are able to meet life with poise, good manners and elegance.

In order to welcome younger ages into our program, we will offer two age groups, Belles (grades 6-7) & Chéries (grades 3-5).

The Finishing School is a selective program and provides personalized lessons and private consultations for participants. Students are encouraged to maintain extracurricular activities including performing and fine arts, foreign language studies, sports and rigorous academic programs. Please see details for each program below along with link to application.
