VES is an inclusive, welcoming community of boarding and day students in grades 9 - 12, who are curious, smart, funny, kind and innovative—the next generation of creators and producers with the power to change the world.
Founded in 1916, Virginia Episcopal School is among the top co-ed, small boarding and day schools in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast. Intentionally small, we serve 260 students from across the country and around the world.
VES' mission remains true to when the school was founded more than 100 years ago—to know students individually and help each grown Toward Full Stature.
Every step of the way, students are supported by dedicated faculty, coaches, advisors and peers who know them well. VES delivers programs with purpose—engaging, hands-on academic experiences; a wide range of arts, athletics and clubs; endless opportunities to try new things; and student life programs both instructive and inspiring.
VES graduates attend many of the world’s finest colleges and universities, including Stanford, UVA, Cornell, Yale, Columbia University, MIT, Wellesley, the U.S Naval Academy, Georgetown, UNC-Chapel Hill, Duke, the College of William & Mary, and Wake Forest.
Located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, our 160-acre campus is just minutes away from the vibrant city of Lynchburg, and is located within a three-hour drive to Washington, DC, and two hours to Richmond, Va., and Greensboro, NC.
