At Orchard House School, we believe that students learn best when they are active participants in their own education, not passive recipients of knowledge. Our curriculum is designed to enhance motivation, retention and understanding. Our classes are stimulating, interactive, exciting and fun. Our devoted faculty serves not only as educators but also as mentors and guides to the learning experience.
Math and science are given as much prominence as the arts and humanities in order to provide a well-rounded education and building block for future academic pursuits. We encourage our girls to make connections among content areas, to apply what they learn in a global context, and to become adept at writing and research.
Orchard House School is fully accredited by the Virginia Association of Independent Schools.
