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.
