Middleburg Academy was open to students of all faiths who were seeking an independent, co-educational, college preparatory high school in the Northern Virginia area. Of the twenty-seven full-time members of faculty, seventeen held one or more advanced degrees, with five holding PhDs. Advanced placement (AP) courses were offered in all academic disciplines.
Students participated in a variety of clubs and organizations, such as Green Club, Spirit Club, Yearbook, Student Council, and the Varsity Club. All students were required to have been accepted into one four-year accredited college, pass all classes in their senior year, and fulfill an annual mandatory twenty-five hour community service prerequisite in order to graduate.
Each student was assigned to an Advisory group, which was a group of ten to twelve students and one faculty member which met twice a week. The faculty member acted as a liaison to parents for information about upcoming school activities and as a first point of contact when students needed guidance.
