Welcome to Middleburg Academy
We are a small independent school serving grades 8-12, and we believe that a student’s secondary school experience should be meaningful in every way. Engaging the experience is an extraordinary faculty that inspires the best in each student. A Middleburg Academy education is, and always will be, all-encompassing, with a genuine emphasis on the education of the whole person. We believe that a classical liberal arts education is not only the best college-preparatory curriculum, it is an education aimed toward living a noble and fruitful life.
Our campus is located in the beautiful hills of historic Loudoun County. It is home to faculty and administrators who live on campus along with a herd of deer that roam over 90 acres of woods, fields, and lawns. Goose Creek, which borders our campus, is a staging point for kayaking and canoeing, while fans of our athletic teams enjoy spirited games with wonderful vistas of the hills and distant Bull Run Mountains.
To know Middleburg Academy is to know what an extraordinary classical independent school educational experience can be. To know Middleburg Academy is to know that your child will be afforded the opportunity to be part of a community which cares deeply about the fulfillment of his or her potential—not only in the classroom, but in life. We do this in the context of a global outlook, helping students to thoughtful freedom and virtuous leadership as we take advantage of a location that is easily accessible to our nation’s capital and beyond. It is the place where a student comes of age, a place we call Middleburg Academy.
We hope you will consider visiting our campus at any time. We are located off Route 50 merely 40 miles west of the Washington Mall and 18 miles south of Leesburg, VA.
