The Linder Academy, a private school that opened at 607 S. Washington Street in 2021, has applied to open a new location at Ross Dress for Less at 112 N. Washington Street.

The school, which currently has around 105 students at the existing location, is applying to have a maximum of 160 middle and high school students at the new location.

“Linder Academy is a private school in Alexandria and is looking to expand its footprint in Old Town with this location,” the application said. “The proposed floor plan shows 13 classrooms, as well as other associated learning, counseling and administrative spaces, including a multi-purpose room, a teaching kitchen, cafeteria, teachers’ lounge and library.”

The application said the new location will have small class sizes, with 12 students per teacher, and a focus on hands-on learning.

The application said the new school has three parking spaces on the property in a small alley, but they will lease 10 spaces in a parking garage at 515 King Street.
