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 the National Association of Independent Schools. It’s innovative curriculum offers 80 courses, including 12 APs, and nine interscholastic sports, one of which is a nationally-renown riding program.
Foxcroft is, by design, a small, residential school. The 2011-12 student body is 66 percent boarding students with a total of 152 girls from 20 states, Washington D.C., and seven foreign countries. Some 12.5 percent are U.S. students of color, 18 percent are international students, and about 25 percent receive a total of more than $1.2 million of financial aid. In addition, 31 percent of the students are related to alumnae -- an impressive testament to the relationship between the School and its graduates.
