This is a blog for the AP US History class at The Miller School of Albemarle near Charlottesville, VA and the University of Virginia. Information about the Miller School and the History Department can be found here.
Miller School of Albemarle, a coeducational day and boarding college preparatory school for students in grades 8-12, first opened its doors in 1878 with 33 students. Girls first enrolled in 1884, making MSA one of the nation’s oldest coeducational boarding schools. In 2016-2017, MSA entered its 140th year with just over 180 boys and girls from around Virginia, around the nation, and around the world. The school is situated 12 miles west of Charlottesville and the University of Virginia on a gently rolling campus of 1,600 pristine acres, including our very own 11-acre lake!
Proud of being a small school with small classes, Miller School boasts a rigorous academic college preparatory program and a unique “mind, hands, and heart” curriculum. There is an emphasis on character, honor, and individual responsibility; arts education; community service; and athletics for both boys and girls.
