What Our Community is Saying About Us

Abigail Smedley

“I learned what it was like to be a Christian, and I was educated not just to follow the Lord, but to follow the Lord to the best of my ability and use the talents that He gave me to honor His kingdom, which is something that I wouldn’t have worked at if I had gone to another school.”

Alumni Abigail Smedley

Rodney Harris

“We recently moved here and knew that AFA was the right choice. At the end of our first year, I remember sitting with our boys as they shared their hearts and love for the school with us, eagerly anticipating another year at AFA.”

Rodney Harris

“I knew that taking this job was going to be significant in that it is something that God is going to use to touch students’ lives to draw them to himself. I am so blessed because I see that happening every day.”

Teacher Zach Rallo

Karen Dougherty

“My son learned more at Ad Fontes than we ever knew. He has a love of learning that will benefit him his entire life. He is acing his college assignments and doing great!”

Earlier this month, AFA students Nathan (8th) and Matthew M. (6th) participated in the Regionals section of the National History Bee. They both did very well in their respective groups and now advance to Nationals which will be held virtually later this year. At one point Matthew’s match came down to a tiebreaker question to determine participation in the Regional playoffs. He was prepared for that question because of his 3rd grade project on Benedict Arnold and he ended up with the highest score of the Virginia students for his level and 5th place overall for his level. Gentlemen, we’re proud of your hard work and the demonstration of your abilities! Well done. #adfontesacademy #inspiredlearning #inspirationalstudents ... See MoreSee Less

What do our kindergarteners learn? Geography!

In their study of Germany they learn that German children don’t hang stockings at Christmas, they put their shoes outside the door instead. Our youngest students practiced this tradition today and discovered a little Christmas magic in October. Sounds like “hands on learning” we can all get excited about!
