Students flourish in an environment of discipleship and fellowship.

Ad Fontes is one of the best private schools in northern Virginia because we treasure the special relationship between teacher and student.

Our teachers combine a heart for Christ and their students with high expectations and a nurturing spirit. We build passion for academic subjects shared within a culture of dialogue and debate, not simply lecture.

The Ad Fontes academic program develops well-rounded, thoughtful, and well-spoken Christian men and women with the character, skills, and vision they need to succeed at university and in life.

“Every subject is woven together to create a firm foundation and worldview that will benefit my children for the rest of their lives. I don’t know where we would be if God hadn’t started my children on this track at their youngest and most impressionable ages.”
