My son and nephew both attended Blue Ridge which provided a top class education in a beautiful setting. The boys were well prepared for college and were accepted into some of the top universities across America. They come from all races and all the continents. The Fishburne Learning Center is ranked among the best in the nation and the faculty members live on campus and work hand-in-hand with parents. There is a great rapport in this very vibrant community!
