With a unique emphasis on mind, hands, and heart, Miller School of Albemarle prepares young women and men for success in college and life. Distinguished by a rigorous and supportive program, talented faculty and staff, meaningful leadership opportunities, and small classroom settings, our congenial community builds responsible citizens, insightful thinkers, and compassionate individuals.
While there are many independent schools in the United States, few can match the interest and investment we give to every one of our students. That particular ingredient is a large part of our recipe to help students discover talents and abilities they never knew that they possessed. Our hope is that each student acquires not only the academic knowledge that will make her or him a success in college but also the subtle qualities that make our students caring, confident citizens of the world. Our goal is to help all students achieve more than they might have thought possible before today.
From the days where families in need found a welcome refuge for their child who held great promise and realized it at Miller School of Albemarle to those who are now enjoying life at a top university because of all the work they did here, we remind you that the spirit of Samuel Miller’s dream lives on, and it manifests itself in you and in all the things you have done in your life to honor that spirit.
The curriculum at the Miller School of Albemarle combines rigorous coursework with individualized attention and support. Students are challenged to reach their full potential as learners, building not only content knowledge but also creativity, problem-solving abilities, and analytical skills. A full spectrum of courses, including many honors sections and thirteen AP options, provides the flexibility to meet each student’s individual needs while preparing all students for college success.
Student Government. The student body elects a Student Government Association President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. These officers act as conduits for the exchange of information between the student body and the School Administration.
Weekend Activities. Students have plenty to do on “the Hill” during the weekends. The pool is open for swimming during warm weather, and fishing and canoeing are available at our 11-acre lake. Students can often be found playing informal tennis and soccer games, or going for a walk around campus. In the evenings, students can catch a movie playing in the Bistro (the student hangout adjacent to the school store) or start an impromptu open mic night in the chapel.
