Absolutely! Classical Christian education is a tried and true method of teaching children according to their abilities and strengths. Children love to be challenged and stretched, and our well-trained teachers balance this with love and kindness toward each student. Click on the Student Life tab for information on electives and activities, or click on the Academics tab to see how carefully our curriculum is integrated horizontally (through the year) and vertically (from grade K to 12). Colleges, universities, and trades schools appreciate our students. Learn where our seniors are accepted and land after Rockbridge Academy.

Absolutely! We love visitors! We offer tours, virtual information meetings, Story Times, and Open House events throughout the year.

We are pleased to offer many opportunities for your child to grow: Motor Lab, field trips, boys' and girls' sports, FCA, drama, orchestra, choir, drawing, painting, debate, mock trial, academic competitions, a variety of student club, and a vibrant House system. You may have heard of the Grand Tour! There are also informal opportunities to enjoy other families in after-school play, book clubs, and fellowship. Whether students are competing, planning, or just playing, we want to encourage them to delight in all that God has given them and to use these opportunities for His glory.
Rockbridge Academy is accredited through the Association of Classical & Christian Schools, and a member of the Society of Classical Learning. We teach new teachers and administrators from school across the country how to do classical Christian education well through our Summer Teacher Training and the ACCS Auxilium.
Each year, students in grades 2, 4, 6, and 7 take the CTP-5 test. Our students perform very well on these standardized tests, with average scores ranging above the local, state, and national norm.
In high school, the Class of 2019's SAT scores averaged 1349 out of 1600, based on the verbal and math sections. For more information, check out our stats. Just remember, stats don't tell the whole story of a student or a school. Learn what it means to be prepared for life!
