Welcome to Foxcroft!

— Cathy McGehee, Head of School

“Foxcroft is an incredibly supportive environment where girls celebrate one another's successes and encourage one another in difficult times. It's truly remarkable.”

An Invitation from the Head of School

Dear Prospective Student,

Welcome to Foxcroft School! As you explore our website, I hope that you’ll gain a sense of life at Foxcroft and learn about the incredible educational opportunities to learn, grow, and thrive.

Our tradition of academic excellence and opportunity for women has been firmly established for more than 100 years. Yet, our mission to help each girl explore her unique voice and develop the skills, confidence, and courage to share it with the world has never been more relevant.

Here, girls enjoy unique learning experiences in and out of the classroom, supported by expert faculty who know and value each individual. Our students live in a supportive, inclusive residential community situated on 500 beautiful acres in Virginia’s countryside and form lifelong friendships with girls from across the United States and the world.

Whether you are passionate about science and technology, have a dramatic flair for stage performance, or ride horses as a competitive sport, Foxcroft’s many offerings promote deep learning that comes from real-world experiences, challenging work, and much fun!

While our website introduces Foxcroft’s many exciting programs, there is no better way to experience Foxcroft than to visit our campus. I invite you to attend our next Open House or schedule a personal visit to learn more about these programs and to experience the genuine warmth of our community. You'll find a community that truly sets us apart.
I look forward to meeting you and your family soon.
