Weekly Parent Email – August 12, 2022

August 12, 2022

It was such a pleasure to see many of you at our New Student and Parent Orientation on Tuesday evening. I love sharing the excitement of the new school year with you! 

Williamsburg Academy has changed the lives of my own children through its focus on transformational learning experiences. We are committed to facilitating that for you and your family. We want your children to feel they can achieve anything they deeply care about.

One important part of transformation is the experience students have in the classroom. The best learning happens when students do more than just show up – they take ownership of their educational experience. To help them do that, we’ve included a section in the WA Parent-Student Handbook covering what we expect from students and parents to make each class transformational (and what you can expect from us in return). 

I encourage you to review this section of the handbook with your child. Great relationships are built upon mutual commitment, and we are confident this will be a wonderful educational relationship we are embarking on together this year!

On behalf of all the team, I look forward to seeing your students in class next week and starting this wonderful journey with them.

Headmaster, Williamsburg Academy
