Upper School Spiritual Life

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Randolph-Macon Academy is a boarding school with a healthy respect for those of other beliefs. It is affiliated with the United Methodist Church, and the faculty and staff believe that young people must have a strong ethical, moral, and spiritual foundation upon which to build their lives.  To that end, we strive to engender within students a respect for religious heritage and for all matters spiritual.  The Academy is ecumenical in matters of religious belief, and welcomes students of all religions.
 
Chapel services are scheduled so that day students as well as boarding school students may attend. Student leadership and participation in the service is encouraged regardless of religious affiliation.  Rev Josh Orndorff, the Academy chaplain, also encourages students to share their joys and concerns to be prayed for during the chapel service. Throughout the year, special services and observations are incorporated into the services at both the Upper and Middle School.

At this Christian boarding school, services are scheduled so that both boarding students and day students may participate.

The physical center ofthe spiritual activities at R-MA is Boggs Chapel, which features an Allen Renaissance Quantum (TM) Model Q-385 Organ and a state-of-the-art sound system. The chapel seats approximately 450 people.

The chaplain is also available for students to go to for guidance relating to spiritual matters.

Please contact the school chaplain for any additional questions about this Christian boarding school's programs or about the use of the chapel for weddings and other events:
