Fredericksburg Academy says

Fredericksburg Academy is an independent, nonsectarian school that offers a challenging college-preparatory program in a nurturing learning environment. One hundred percent of our graduates are accepted to four-year colleges and universities. Small class sizes (14 students maximum in PK-3, 16 students maximum in PK-4 and kindergarten, 18 students maximum in other grades) and individualized attention are FA hallmarks. Student-teacher ratio is 7:1. We enroll almost 400 students from Prekindergarten-3 through Grade 12 on a 45-acre campus, which includes two academic buildings, a Sports Center with a gymnasium and a pool, two libraries, a 413-seat theater, five playing fields, four tennis courts, a cross-country trail, and two playgrounds. Signature programs include Responsive Classroom (Lower School), Global Explorers (Middle School), and Senior Exhibit (Upper School). Fredericksburg Academy is the only independent, college-preparatory, prekindergarten-12th grade school in a 50-mile radius.
