Welcome to The Merit School of Arlington

The Merit School of Arlington is located at the corner of Pershing Drive and Arlington Boulevard in a thriving area surrounded by new retail stores, restaurants and residential communities.  The school is located on the ground floor of a five-story upscale apartment building, directly across the street from Fort Myer.
