How It Works

Learning is Different at Williamsburg Academy Private School

You want a school that goes above and beyond to prepare your child for the world we actually live in. That's why we created Williamsburg Academy.


It All Starts with Personalized Attention for Your Student

Before you register for classes, our enrollment advisors will get to know you and your student and answer your questions in a 1:1 phone conversation. We’ll tell you if Williamsburg sounds like a great fit—and recommend next steps either way.

You Get to Choose the 
Best Courses for Your Child

At Williamsburg, you get to handpick your child’s classes and schedule based on their grade level, interests, and educational goals. (We don’t do one-size-fits-all here.) If you need any help, you can meet with your dedicated enrollment advisor.

Designed to Supercharge Your Student’s Growth

We Train Leaders, Not Followers

Our courses are intentionally designed to teach students how to think (not what to think) about each subject. We believe this is vital for preparing students to tackle society’s challenges as tomorrow’s leaders.

Williamsburg Confident Student

We Study the Classics, Not Canned Curriculum

Wherever possible, we ask students to read original works in each subject (rather than the textbooks written about those works). This lets our students engage directly with some of history’s best thinkers.

Williamsburg Classic Curriculum

We Emphasize Personal Growth, Not Just Academics

The heart of our curriculum is our signature leadership program. These courses go beyond traditional academics to give students in-depth leadership training for their personal, social, professional, and financial lives.

Plus, Our Program Gives Your Student More Free Time

Full-time Williamsburg students spend an average of 25% less time on school than their public school peers. That’s because they get to skip things like in-person roll calls, commuting to and from school, and other forms of busywork.
