Educational Philosophy

The R-MA community (students, faculty, staff, parents, trustees, and alumni/ae) believes that every student at R-MA is curious and capable.  Our positive interaction and personal attention inspires the students’ curiosity and confidence to learn throughout their personal and professional lives.  We believe that the personal attention of the teacher makes the difference in the classroom.  We believe parents, teachers, and administrators help students succeed by working together on academic aspirations, leadership, self-reliance, character development and service to others.  We heartily believe students do their very best when they are known, respected, and encouraged.

Randolph-Macon Academy was founded in 1892 and is the oldest co-ed boarding school with Air Force JROTC in the U.S.
