Middleburg Academy has to be one of the most welcoming, caring, and kindest communities I have ever had the pleasure of being a part of. The administration is taking the school to a whole new level; making sure the academics are taking a precedence, the school has become more student-centered, and there is absolutely no tolerance for bullying. For it being a small school, it has been amazing to see how everyone, from the students to the faculty, are extremely inclusive. I would highly recommend Middleburg Academy to a family who is looking for their student to excel in their academics, wanting their students to try new activities and sports, and for families who want their students to truly be prepared for college.

This is a safe place to share your honest opinions of a school, whether good or bad.
Good school, I like the direction of where this school is headed (with no tolerance for bullying on social media or in the hallways).
I understand that this place had a turbulent past, before it became an independent school. What I like about this school is how open the leadership is to parent and student input. The current headmaster has invited me and regularly invites other parents for weekly coffee meetings to discuss the vision of the school and to get feedback.
As an alumnae of Notre Dame Academy, and a parent of students who currently attend, or who have graduated from Middleburg Academy, I am proud to be a member of this community and believe it is the best fit for a student who wants to be fully prepared for college. The students are held up to high standards for their academics, their behavior, and for their extra curricular activities. My student goes to Middleburg Academy everyday wanting to learn, and continue their learning outside of the classroom, and I am confident enough to say that about every student who sets foot on the campus. It is rare to find a high school environment that is so centered on their students; students at Middleburg Academy are learning to take responsibilities for their own actions, and becoming young adults.
my experience at Middleburg was nothing short of incredible. I was one of the only students in my college dorm that felt prepared to be in college in regards to my skills; I was able to manage my time with work, sports, and socially, and I was not surprised by the amount of work I got in college. By the time I had graduated from Middleburg Academy, I felt completely ready to not only go to college, but excel in college.
I can not tell you how much my daughter loves her professors. Everyday on the way home from school I get a mini version of the classes that she was in that day. No books , just from her memory. That is TEACHING!
My Daughter struggles with her academics and in the past at other schools has just given up, But not at Middleburg Academy. Here her Advisor her teachers and her friends have all encouraged her to try harder and have each shown her a different way to be successful
Neither of my kids were overwhelmed by the amount of work they have in college thanks to the homework they had to do at Middleburg Academy. They were never too overwhelmed with their work, and teachers knew when they had to assign certain work because the faculty spoke to one another. My kids never had more than one or two tests in a day.
