The academy is situated on a beautiful campus of 240 acres in the mountains of Virginia, with woodlands, landscaped areas, playing fields, outdoor basketball and tennis courts, riding arena, and scenic lake. View our interactive campus map.
There are, on average, 9 students per class. This gives us a chance to give personal attention to each student — everyone knows everyone here by name, and we all work together as a learning community to push each other to succeed.
