  • A little help can go a long way to help a family keep their children here at Rockbridge Academy or help a new family find their way here. Historically, for every $1 in tution assistance raised, $5 of tuition income is preserved. For every one tuition raised, five students are able to walk our hallsways.

  • A Charge to Laugh Well

    Pastor Unthank was asked to give the charge at the end-of-year Awards Assembly. Enjoy his exhortation to laugh.

    In Jesus Christ, our future is set—there is a glorious inheritance to be enjoyed, unending joy with Christ, laughing as we inevitably will be around the table and feast which Revelation calls the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. No matter how dark the world around us gets, no matter how interesting our era becomes, remember Christ and look forward to Christ and in him find true joy. Laugh well and laugh often!

  • Celebrating 25 Years and a New Building!

    Rockbridge Academy celebrates our 25th year and the opening of our new campus at 680 Evergreen Road in Crownsville, MD. 

    What does an educational model from 500 hundred years ago have to do with a 1349 average SAT score today, an 18-day capstone trip through Greece and Italy, a 25-year anniversary, and new building?

    Find the answers here! 

    These are exciting times to visit and learn more about the classical Christian education model--one of the fastest growing movements among believers in the last 30 years. Rockbridge Academy is one of the oldest and most established classical Christian schools in the country.

  • The Woodbridge Classic

    Bringing Some Rockbridge to the Woodbridge

    by Natalie Watson, Rockbride Journalism Student and Cross Country Runner

    The Rockbridge varsity cross-country team traveled to Los Angeles, CA, from September 19-21 to run in the Woodbridge Classic, a nationally acclaimed annual meet with over 15,000 runners and 400 teams present. As the only MD team to participate in the history of the Woodbridge meet, the team witnessed beautiful running. When the 2018 varsity girls’ cross-country team won the small school division in the Maryland Private School State Championship last year, no one expected to wind up in California at a national invitational 10 months later.

  • Family Worship

    How does your family engage in family worship? Honestly, it is a struggle for many, if not most, families. First of all, how does one even lead a family worship time? How do we carve out time for this? Is it really worth fighting for that time? Why do it? 

    Jay Mitchell, our former board chairman, shares how he persisted through the years with 8 children and now 12 grandchildren.

  • Reading Original Sources

    By Denise Hollidge, Grammar School Principal

    During my many years at Rockbridge Academy, I’m often asked what curriculum we use for science, history, math, or Bible. While we provide many resources to our teachers and have a few typical textbooks for occasional student use, for the most part we use original sources. An original or primary source is evidence from the past. For example, diaries, letters, constitutions, wills, naturalization papers, treaties, and military papers are all primary source documents. A secondary source is developed from primary sources. It tries to make sense of the past and can be very helpful, but our bias is to encourage our students to go ad fontes. Ad fontes is the Latin phrase which means “to the sources.”
