Founded in 1914, Foxcroft School is a college-preparatory boarding and day school for girls in grades 9-12. The school is located on 500 acres in Middleburg, Virginia, 50 miles west of Washington, D.C. It is accredited by the Virginia Association of Independent Schools and is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools.
Foxcroft is, by design, a small, residential school. The student body is comprised of approximately seventy percent (70%) boarding and thirty percent (30%) day students. They represent over twenty (20) states, Washington D.C., and over a dozen foreign countries. Approximately one third of the student body receives financial aid and nearly one-quarter of the students are related to alumnae -- an impressive testament to the relationship between the School and its graduates.
