School Reviews

  • Recommended July 27, 2012 - At the time there were few better gifts that we could have ever given our daughter than the gift of Foxcroft School in Middleburg, Virginia. The school provided the environment, experience and education to empower our daughter to achieve academic excellence and to be accepted into variety of colleges of her choice. Our daughter developed personal leadership skills that have helped her to navigate her life in a way that not only provided options but direction and discipline in her work ethic and in navigating the many life choices that young people face. Our daughter currently is a strong college student, community leader and a young women who makes great choices in her friendships. In addition to strong academics Foxcroft had all the opportunities for sports and arts -for which our daughter embraced and the school always supported her along the way . Foxcroft has the tools in place to support a variety of girls. Thank you Foxcroft -- - Posted by Parent
