Virginia Episcopal School

VES is a co-ed college preparatory school for boarding and day students in grades 9 – 12. In our intentionally small, diverse and engaging community—260 young men and women and 40 faculty—we guide students to strive Toward Full Stature in their academic, ethical, spiritual and personal growth.

What is a Bishop student like?

We ask that you bring your open mind, creativity and bright ideas, and a desire to fully immerse yourself in the classroom, sports, the arts, clubs, advisory, student life and all the fun we have on and off campus. 

We seek individuals who value personal integrity, inclusivity and mutual respect, collaborating with others, living a healthy lifestyle and finding joy in serving their community.

We want your unique personality, because different perspectives make VES an incredibly interesting place to live, learn and grow. So, you be you, and we'll help you become the best version of yourself.
