——Eva B. ’23

“Before coming to Foxcroft, I was not a science person. However, I've ended up finding my happy place within the 阀杆 Department. From spending countless hours in the basement of Schoolhouse to getting off campus and stream monitoring our local creek, the 阀杆 Department has supported me through all of my crazy ideas.”

  • 史诗

    Foxcroft was the first academic girls-only boarding prep school in Virginia to become part of Purdue University’s 史诗 (Engineering Projects in Community Service Learning) High Program — which is a prime example of how we make 阀杆 subjects compelling for students, whether they think of themselves as being science/math-oriented or not.

    史诗 is a design-based service learning program through which student teams provide engineering solutions for local non-profits. Our “clients” include schools, horseback riding centers, the humane society, and a history museum. Recent projects built range from creating a display for the Goose Creek Association and trail mapping right here on Foxcroft's campus.
