Delivering our mission while protecting the health of our community
Even during a global pandemic, our mission remains the same: to prepare students of all faiths for success in universities worldwide and for engaged lives of intellectual curiosity, creativity, and contribution. For the 2020-21 school year this entails providing a stellar educational experience throughout the academic year, whether on campus or from anywhere in the world via state-of-the-art audio and video immersive distance learning. While school will looks and feels different this year, our focus on the whole child – intellectual, social, and emotional well-being – continues.
We will continue our commitment to ensuring every student is happy, safe, known, and loved.
Safeguarding the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff is our primary goal. Preventing an outbreak of COVID-19 requires action at the individual, grade level, divisional, all-campus, and local community levels. Our COVID-19 safety and health plans are based on the guidelines published by the US Centers for Disease Control, Virginia Department of Health, and the Virginia Department of Education.
We have implemented new procedures and are following best practices to maintain a healthy school environment and to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 disease. These practices include strict limitation of visitors, self-screening guidelines, wearing masks, washing and disinfecting hands frequently, and respecting physical distancing guidelines.
