School Reviews

I have had the joy of serving this great Academy for over 16 years in a variety of roles. As the current Director of Student Life, Head Swim Team Coach, Middle School Interact Coordinator and Public Address Announcer for our home Football Games, the growth that I have been priviledged to be part of here at Randolph-Macon Academy (R-MA) in bearing witness to the success of so many young people has been the most humbling honour of my personal and professional llife. The ability of "every" student to be part of a Varsity Sport at R-MA, as well as enjoy our small class sizes, state of the art classroom technology, STEM Masters Programme, individualised attention and extensive AP (Dual Enrollment) programmes, truly makes us an attractive resource for families seeking to offer their children a priceless "head start" towards a successful life at the University level and in life.
