The School Liaison Program (SLP) focuses its efforts on making transitions for military school age children easier. Through connections with families, schools, commanders, community and installation programs, School Liaisons engage in a system of support on behalf of the military child.

The Henderson Hall Marine Corps School Liaison is here to serve military families, commands, schools and the community located in the National Capital Region. The program provides support for transitioning students in grades K-12 due to the mobile military lifestyle:

  • Information on local schools (public, private and charter)
  • Homeschooling requirements
  • Marines Mentoring Program
  • Special Education (Check out for additional support on this topic)
  • High School graduation requirements
  • Post-secondary preparation
  • Tutoring resources
  • Military Interstate Children's Compact (The Compact addresses key educational transition issues encountered by military families including enrollment, placement, attendance, eligibility and graduation.)
