Middle 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.

At the Middle School level, chapel services are held on Wednesday mornings in the Community Hall, located in the main Middle School academic building, Mast Hall. This permits both day students and boarding students to attend. Every student is required to attend this ecumenical chapel service that includes song, scripture, and prayer.  Student leadership and participation in the service is encouraged regardless of religious affiliation.  

Randolph-Macon Academy is affiliated with the United Methodist Church. Students attend chapel once per week, and there is an optional Bible study one per week as well.

For some special events, Middle School students may go to 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.

Please contact the school chaplain for any additional questions about Christian life for boarding and day students at the school:
