A Welcome from Admissions
Welcome, and thank you for considering Middleburg Academy for your secondary school experience! As you explore our community, we hope that you will discover the many ways in which our small size and nurturing atmosphere enable each student to be known, valued, and guided.
Since our founding in 1965, our emphasis has been and will always be on educating the whole person. Our classical education model not only serves as the best college-preparatory curriculum, it is an education aimed toward living a noble and fruitful life. Middleburg Academy graduates have learned how to think, enabling them to pursue fulfilling, meaningful lives far beyond the classroom.
We offer an ideal setting for educational enrichment, and students take full advantage of our pastoral 90-acre campus. They may know that one of the best spots to read and write is under an ancient oak tree; or that the local Virginia countryside and our abundant wildlife provide a stunning plethora of subjects to photograph, paint, or draw; or where there are grassy expanses perfect for launching rockets in physics class.
Students who wish to prepare for a competitive college environment, to engage in the active life of our school community, and to learn how to think as they prepare not only for their academic and professional futures, but for their promising, full lives ahead, will thrive at Middleburg Academy. Our students are a diverse group of motivated young people who are eager to take advantage of what an outstanding independent, classical education offers.
kasey morris / Director of Admissions
Kasey Morris is thrilled to enter her third year with the Middleburg Academy family, serving as our Director of Admissions. She also oversees many of the school’s communications, including sending out our weekly newsletters, The Dragon (general news) and The Dungeon (athletic news), as well as developing our social media presence on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
Kasey graduated magna cum laude from Princeton University with a degree in Classics; her undergraduate research focused on Julio-Claudian island exile and won the departmental prize for best senior thesis. After Princeton, she moved abroad and completed her masters degree in Classical Archaeology at the University of Oxford. Kasey also has extensive experience in the art and antiques world; she runs her own art management business for private collectors and has catalogued ancient coins for Princeton’s Rare Books & Special Collections department as well as for the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford. But, perhaps one of the most interesting things Kasey has done is spending a summer in the Transylvania region of Romania, where she excavated human remains in a medieval cemetery.
Outside of work, Kasey is a passionate equestrian; she foxhunts and enjoys polo, having played in tournaments in China, England, Italy, and the United States. She also loves reading, playing sports, and traveling. Her pet snake, Henry, sometimes visits her office at Middleburg Academy and greets guests in the capacity of her "Personal Ahisstant".
