Prince William Academy (PWA) is a secular, private educational institution where each child can fulfill his or her academic, developmental, and personal potential. PWA honors the integrity and worth of each individual in a highly diverse and multicultural school community. We are dedicated to promoting an educational awareness of the richness of our nation’s cultural diversity and heritage, and to instilling in our students the desire to grow into good, responsible citizens of our country and of the world. We prepare our students to excel in a global environment.
PWA is located in tranquil Lake Ridge, VA, and convenient to Woodbridge, Manassas, Dale City, Lorton, Dumfries, Fairfax, Springfield, Quantico, Fort Belvoir, Occoquan, and Fairfax Station. Our families hail from throughout Prince William and Fairfax counties.
We offer discounted tuition for parents who are educators, nurses, police officers, firefighters, or members of the US military. We also offer discounts based on sibling enrollment and financial need.
Prince William Academy seeks to enroll students who have the potential to take advantage of its challenging academic program. Our school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, or national or ethnic origin.
