"There are so many different ways that teachers try to input student-direction and student creativity. I loved diving deep into topics. There’s such a wide array. Outdoor leadership, orchestra, computer science, humanities and studying diverse history, student teaching, and I even did a 200-mile bike trip — there’s truly something for everyone to explore a topic deeply." — Nia Robinson '22, current sophomore at Carnegie Mellon University

Make the Right Move for the Whole Family

The largest Pre-School through Grade 12 independent school in Charlottesville/Albemarle, our teachers believe in fostering age-appropriate independence so that students learn to make choices, to experiment, to fail safely, and to be curious. 

"It is very important to me that my students feel that my classroom is a community of belonging. For middle schoolers, especially in the arts, the journey begins with honoring one's own strengths, individuality, and creativity. I equip my students with structure for individual discipline as well as giving them access to rich, enjoyable musical experiences." — Anna Hennessy, M.M., Orchestra Teacher and 2022 Golden Apple Award Recipient
