Peabody School is located just minutes from downtown Charlottesville, off Avon St. Extended, near the Mill Creek and Foxcroft neighborhoods.
The campus sits on more than five acres, providing outdoor areas for our community, including sports fields, two playgrounds, an outdoor classroom, and a much-beloved large boulder for climbing (and a ‘home base’ for many games). The land borders a creek that provides great adventures and a natural science lab for our students who are studying watersheds and biology.
The buildings on campus include a two-story LEED-certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) structure completed in 2006, which houses the PreKindergarten and Lower School. This building provides top-notch academic space for our students, including a fully equipped computer lab, plus music, art, and science laboratories to support our students and the curriculum. Our reading library offers students books to support academic learning and reading for pleasure at home.
In 2014, Peabody School completed the Batten Building, a state-of-the-art home for our middle school, gymnasium, performing arts space, and science lab for Chemistry, Physics, and Biology classes. The building is named in honor of Dorothy Batten, a long-time Peabody parent, volunteer, philanthropist, and Board member, who has been instrumental in the school’s progress and development.
We welcome you to come see our campus for yourself!
