Step 1: Complete Application Online

Step 2: Submit Transcript and Recommendations

1. School report and official transcript 
2. Teacher and Personal Recommendations

Give the above forms to your current school with stamped envelopes addressed to the Blue Ridge School Admission Office (273 Mayo Drive, St. George, Virginia 22935). The school must then send the official transcript and school report directly to Blue Ridge. 

All four recommendations by the appropriate persons must be submitted to complete the application process.

Step 3: Schedule Campus Visit and Admissions Interview

In order to complete the application, we recommend our prospective students and their families visit Blue Ridge School. The visit will include a personal tour of the campus and the applicant's admissions interview. We encourage parents to bring unofficial transcripts, recent report cards or educational testing to the campus visit.

All applicants must interview as part of the admissions process. Students who cannot make it to campus for an interview may do so via Skype ®. Please call the Office of Admissions to schedule your visit and interview (434-985-2811).

Step 4: Submit Testing

If current (within two years) educational/psychological or other diagnostic testing related to the applicant's aptitude or achievement is available, please forward copies to the Office of Admissions.  Blue Ridge School may require testing before considering an application.

Second language applicants are required to submit official iTEP SLATE, SSAT, TOEFL Junior or TOEFL scores.   

The Groves Family Legacy Tuition Program honors Robert W. “Bobby” Groves III ’67 and his family. Bobby and his wife Anne were the first alumni parents to enroll a child at BRS. Their son Billy graduated in 1995 and their nephews Johnson and Robert Stevens were equally successful here, graduating in 2003 and 2006, respectively.

Blue Ridge is incredibly proud of this legacy and for the sterling example that Bobby and his family have set.
