An independent, coeducational PK-Grade 12 private school located in historic Fredericksburg, Virginia.


Middle School students at FA are supported through the advisory program, giving them a sense of belonging that makes them better students.

Each student is assigned an individual advisor from the teachers in the grade-level team.

The advisor is a source of information and support for students and parents, and helps plan the student's academic and extracurricular activities and guide the student to set and assess goals. Advisor and advisee meet throughout the school year, especially before and after grading periods, to discuss class performance and study habits.

Although parents are encouraged to contact teachers directly if they have questions or concerns, advisors serve as an additional contact and can help arrange parent-teacher conferences.
