A Welcome from Admissions

Welcome and thank you for considering Middleburg Academy for your high school experience.  As you explore our learning community, we hope that you will discover the many ways in which our small size and nurturing atmosphere enable each person to be known, valued, and guided

We offer an ideal setting for educational enrichment, and students take full advantage of our pastoral ninety-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 provides a stunning panorama to photograph, paint, or draw; or that there are grassy expanses for launching rockets in physics class.

Middleburg Academy’s curriculum seeks to stimulate intellectual curiosity and to provide the foundation upon which a life of continuous learning can be constructed. Students receive strong academic fundamentals and are challenged at the highest levels in mathematics, science, English, social studies, foreign languages, ethics, and world religions, as well as in the performing and visual arts. They participate in a wide variety of extracurricular clubs and activities that promote teamwork and offer leadership opportunities. Throughout this varied coursework, students are also exposed to the complexities of the world around them and are encouraged to observe and investigate. Guided by our school’s mission, students learn to respond as engaged, problem-solving citizens.

Students who wish to prepare for a competitive college, engage in the life of the school community, and excel in their areas of interest will thrive at Middleburg Academy. Our students are a diverse group of motivated individuals who take advantage of what a premier independent school education offers.

Kasey Morris enters her third year with the Middleburg Academy family in the capacity of Advancement and Admissions Officer, working with Edwina Bell in Mary House. She also oversees much of the school’s communications, including sending out our weekly newsletters, The Dragon (general news) and The Dungeon (athletic news), and 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. Prior to working at Middleburg Academy, Kasey was involved in the art world. She runs her own art management business and has catalogued ancient Roman coins for both Princeton and the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford--but perhaps one of the most interesting things that Kasey has done is to have spent a summer in the Transylvania region of Romania excavating 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".
