Lynnhaven Academy is an independent school located in Richmond, Virginia for students in grades 6-12. Our goal is to help students discover their strengths, unlock their potential, and find their path. We achieve this objective by providing a family-like atmosphere and small academic classes with an 8:1 student to teacher ratio. We have easy access to parks and museums, a flexible curriculum, and an inclusive environment. Our approach is to provide students a hands-on learning environment that is rich with positive encouragement. We incorporate experiential and project based learning as a catalyst for instruction. These approaches effectively drive authentic understanding and application of knowledge while fostering independence and curiosity.
