An Independent School serving grades 8-12
Middleburg Academy inspires students to excellence in academics, the arts, and athletics. We are a dynamic community of students, faculty, staff, parents, and alumni dedicated to lifelong learning, service to others, personal growth, and the success of each student. Middleburg Academy strives to develop young men and women of moral integrity who who are responsible leaders and citizens in a diverse and ever-changing world.
Middleburg Academy interprets “college preparation” in the broadest sense: we prepare our students for the academic demands of higher education, but we also help each to develop his or her own moral compass in preparation for increased independence at college.
This genuine emphasis on developing the whole person – head and heart, intellect and character – is deeply embedded in our rich and varied past. The philosophy was established in 1965, when Notre Dame Academy was founded as a Catholic boarding school for girls; it was there in the 1990s, as we evolved into a coeducational Catholic day school; and it continues to guide a non-sectarian extraordinary independent school - welcome to Middleburg Academy.
