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.

Whether you are trying a sport for the first time or you're at the top of your game, we have athletic options suited for you—with more than 30 boys, girls and co-ed teams across 18 competitive sports.

VES Bishops value health and wellness, teamwork, sportsmanship and the challenge of a long-standing rivalry. And we're known for the respect we show our competitors and referees. A result of their hard work and commitment, our teams and athletes find success at conference, state and national levels.

We believe it's important to learn to be part of a team, and there's no better place to build life skills than when you are working together toward a common goal.

As a freshman, you will participate on a sports team, and we encourage all students to continue with a sport or afternoon program that supports their well-being throughout their time at VES.
