Our Upper School students are surrounded and supported by a robust network of teachers, advisors, and coaches who encourage them to unearth their passions and pursue them to the highest degree. Wakefield's Upper School students are active in their student government, competitive athletics, the arts, the school's award-winning literary magazines, and a wide array of clubs and activities.

In the classrooms we are challenged as not only students, but as individuals...
...I am a three season athlete and that has been nothing but an amazing experience.

The social aspect is welcoming and not too overwhelming

Wakefield was a wonderful school for our son and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in great academic preparation for college and character development that will last a lifetime.

Unlike a lot of private schools that focus on grades or test scores alone or place an overemphasis on STEM, Wakefield focuses instead on providing a comprehensive education that addresses the whole child or student's needs -- character, intellect, hard work, self-discipline, independence, creativity, critical thinking skills, fundamental knowledge and curiosity. I can't say enough about this school; one of the best college-preparatory school's in Northern Virginia.
