Foxcroft School (Virginia)
Founded in 1914 by Charlotte Noland, Foxcroft School is a college-prep boarding school and day school for girls in grades 9-12. Girls can also attend the school during the day rather than reside on-campus during their time at Foxcroft School.
Foxcroft School is located in Middleburg, Virginia, with more than 150 students enrolled at the campus, which covers 500 acres. The girls at the campus come from various states across the U.S. and 15 foreign countries.
The school’s curriculum includes 81 courses, which include Advanced Placement (AP courses). In 2014, about 25 students earned AP Scholar recognition from the College Board and seven girls earned the AP scholar with Distinction Award. Only 22 percent of students who take AP exams earn this award.
Along with a strong focus on academia, the school also has an arts and athletic program where girls can excel in extracurricular activities that will prepare them for college. Furthermore, the school has offered a riding program that allows a diverse group of girls to learn more about horsemanship.
Prospective students must apply online and will be required to take the Secondary School Admission test, complete a questionnaire, and obtain school transcripts and teacher recommendations. Financial aid is available for some students.
