Randolph-Macon Academy has been named one of the Top Schools in Virginia by Virginia Living Magazine. The Academy was recognized for its recent renovation of the former library into the Betty and Dave ‘53 Moore Enterprise and Leadership Lab. The renovated space includes a conference room with retractable glass walls, low bookshelves that allow natural light to flood the entire lab, and flexible furnishings that promote creativity and collaborative work.
Virginia Living State of Education, a special section in Virginia Living’s April 2020 issue, celebrates excellence and innovation in Virginia’s schools.
Featuring in-depth and positive coverage of news and trends in education, Virginia Living State of Education includes Top Schools & Colleges 2020, a list of more than 160 programs in schools across the state leading the way in innovation. Randolph-Macon Academy was featured in the Private K-12 Schools category.
“We are excited about receiving this honor once again,” said R-MA President Brigadier General David C. Wesley, USAF, Retired. “Virginia Living has recognized Randolph-Macon Academy as a top private school in every State of Education issue they have produced. That fact is a testament to the continuous hard work of our faculty and staff and the support of our alumni and friends.”
Virginia Living’s Top Schools & Colleges 2020 recognizes four-year colleges, private high schools, private K-12 schools, private K-8 schools, public high schools, and special needs schools.
