ASHBURN, Va., Sept. 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — At a time when education has become a battleground for politicians and divisive issues, one school in Loudoun County is doubling down on its investment in the next generation to bring the community together.

This transformative growth includes an expansion of the academic and sports facilities. Virginia Academy is taking a non-partisan approach to faith and education and invites the community to capitalize on this resource for the family.
