Success Starts Here

Our graduating seniors achieved 100% college acceptance

Educators have long recognized that the structure of a military-style environment can provide young men with an essential grounding for success in the classroom and in life. In such an environment, young men develop self-discipline, responsibility, and pride in their work, in their appearance, and in themselves.

We structure our curriculum, such as our unique One Subject Plan, to meet the educational needs of our cadets. We preserve our single-sex environment to remove social distractions that come with a coeducational school. We acknowledge and honor the Christian values that teach us morality and integrity in our daily lives.

Academic Discipline

Supervised Study

One of our key strategies to producing academic success is scheduled supervised study time every Sunday through Thursday evening. For approximately two hours each school night, we require all cadets to be at their desks in their rooms focused on their studies without distractions. 

We call this study time CQ, which is shorthand for the command "Call to Quarters." CQ instills good study habits that are essential to succeeding in the classroom, both here and at college. It teaches cadets what they can accomplish in their lives when they truly focus.

The Standard for Success

Grading Scale

We’ve recently restructured our grading scale to ensure that our cadets are competing on a level playing field with college applicants from both the public and private sectors. Likewise, as a college-preparatory school, we felt it was necessary to align ourselves with the standards set by institutions of higher education. After much research, we implemented the following 10-point grading scale and quality scale, which is closely aligned with the standards set by many of Virginia’s finest colleges and universities.

Academic Honors

Honor Roll

At the end of each term, each cadet with a B- or higher in his One-Subject Plan class will receive the Honor Roll title.
