Combining hands-on experience in the garden with classroom work, the course is dual-enrolled, providing college credit through Lord Fairfax Community College. The course is taught by Science Department Chairman Kara Lewallen, who oversees the community garden in conjunction with R-MA Cadet Life Supervisor Rob Sittman '08.

Homecoming is special time of the year for a high school community, especially for a boarding school that is nearly 125 years old. It is a time when people come together in a friendly atmosphere to celebrate the past, present, and future of the community in which they take much pride.  The 2016 Homecoming weekend at Randolph-Macon Academy provided its students, alumni, faculty, and staff with such an atmosphere. More than 275 alumni and guests returned to “The Hill” for the festivities.
