Edlin School in Reston Is Under New Ownership

Reston, VA — May 2, 2021 — Edlin School, which follows a curriculum designed for the needs of gifted and talented students, has been acquired by Elluma Education LLC. John and Diana DuMont are the owners of Elluma Education and plan on building upon the legacy established by Linda and Bertrand Schreibstein when they founded Edlin 32 years ago.

“As parents of a child currently attending the Edlin School and working closely with the Schreibsteins since October 2020, John and I are thrilled to become a part of Edlin’s future. More than that, we love this school and are committed to continuing its legacy,” said Diana DuMont.

John and Diana DuMont bring over 34 years of combined experience in business operations and organizational leadership. Over the next few months, Diana will work closely with Edlin’s principal, teachers and staff, to modernize operations and ensure continuity so that students are successful for years to come. The DuMont’s vision for the school is to create an environment that inspires and challenges all students to achieve their maximum potential both academically and personally.
