Sixth, seventh, and eighth graders learn to take charge of their education at FA by exploring the world and building a spectrum of skills in everything from labs to literature.
Whether it’s navigating the world in geography class, exploring ecosystems on the annual overnight trip to the Chesapeake Bay, or partnering with Upper Schoolers on their modern-day 'Shakespearience', Middle School students at Fredericksburg Academy connect the lessons learned in the classroom to the world around them. Beyond the core academic subjects, the arts and athletics play a key role in the development of our Middle School students by challenging them to expand their horizons while building the foundation needed for advanced study.
FA’s Middle School program has been carefully constructed to promote independence, responsibility, respect, trust, inclusivity, and accountability. Students are supported through an advisory program which gives them a sense of belonging and supports them both in their learning and through the huge human growth and development changes they experience as young adolescents.
