St. Anne’s-Belfield School (Virginia)
Located on about 50 acres in Charlottesville, Virginia, St. Anne’s-Belfield School is a boarding school located near the campus of the University of Virginia. While it was originally opened as a female-only school run by the local Episcopal Church, the school became co-educational in 1957 and in 1985 it became an independent academic institution.
The school caters to students in Kindergarten through 12th grade, with a five or seven-day boarding program available for high school students. While the boarding students live on campus, they are matched with the family of one of the school’s day students. The goal is to keep the students from feeling the social isolation that can come from living in a boarding school environment.
In recent years, St. Anne’s-Belfield School has made a strong commitment to racial and economic diversity, with students coming from more than 20 different countries. The current student population is comprised of more than 25% students of color and nearly a third of the student body is receiving some sort of financial assistance.
Academically, the school’s primary focus is preparing the students for college and beyond. Students are required to use laptops or tablets beginning in Kindergarten and older students participate in programs that combine knowledge of technology with real world training.
