Advanced Courses

All of our students partake in our already rigorous classical liberal arts curriculum, but it is worth noting that Middleburg Academy’s advanced course offerings are highly competitive among independent high schools in the area. We offer Advancement Placement (AP) and Honors classes, as well as additional advanced level coursework and independent study for exceptional students.

AP courses represent the most rigorous level of academic work available to secondary school students. AP courses and Honors classes are also respected in the college admission process as evidence of challenging study. Credits and advanced standing from secondary-school AP exams can offer the student chances to accelerate or enrich study in a favorite field, to bypass introductory-level courses, to have extra time to take interesting courses outside one’s major area of study, to abbreviate the time required for graduation, and possibly to lighten the expenses of college.


AP courses are taught according to college-level curricula and standards by instructors approved by the College Board.  Middleburg Academy requires AP course students to sit for their AP exams in May every year.
