The Private School program is designed to carry out WVA's mission by helping young students in grades 4-10 acquire knowledge and skills through conversation, discovery, and deep understanding. We strive to inspire in each student a love of learning, self knowledge, and meaningful community membership in each student.
During the middle grades years, students experience rapid growth intellectually, emotionally, and physically and gradually take ownership of the learning process, build relationships, and come to appreciate their own individuality as they prepare to take on the challenges of high school. Although the School's academic program is rigorous, our great expectations are fully aligned with the developmental capacities of our young students and fully supported by the close work and passion of our highly trained and experienced faculty.
