Welcome to St. Anne's-Belfield School!
A school with a rich history spanning more than a century, St. Anne’s-Belfield is located both at the doorstep of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, and the intersection of tradition and innovation. We offer a multi-dimensional educational experience that is nurturing yet challenging and forward-looking. Our community of 942 students from 19 countries, and more than 3,600 alumni spread across the globe, is a diverse and dynamic network that we are excited you are considering joining.
St. Anne's-Belfield School is a place where students grow into exemplary citizens. Our mission is to encourage curiosity and foster a love of learning in our students, inspiring them to be bold in their personal goals. Although we expect our graduates to be prepared for the nation's finest colleges and universities, our true purpose is to create a challenging yet charitable atmosphere where students gain skills necessary for both creative and disciplined thought. Encouraging life-long learning, not simply imparting knowledge, is the foundation upon which our challenging curriculum is built and our myriad classes developed. As outlined in our Strategic Plan, we have high aspirations to continue our educational leadership, and we are focusing now on what we teach, how we interact, and creating even more access for those seeking a St. Anne’s-Belfield education in order to build a better School - a goal we work towards each and every day.
St. Anne's-Belfield School's core purpose is to inspire and prepare the next generation of exemplary citizens and visionary leaders.
Our Belfield and Greenway Rise campuses comprise over 300,000 square feet of teaching and learning spaces for our students in Pre-School through eighth grade in the Learning Village, and newly renovated and state-of-the-art facilities for our Upper School division. Our teachers have the latest resources at their disposal in pursuit of our educational goals, and, with 100% engaging in professional development activities each year, the latest knowledge of research, trends, and best practices as well. Our curriculum offers many innovative courses and interdisciplinary, project-based learning.
From our signature programs to our thriving athletics teams, our diverse arts opportunities to our international residential life program, St. Anne’s-Belfield School offers a unique, encouraging, inclusive experience for students aged two through grade twelve.
