No matter where our students go once they graduate, they are always a part of the Peabody community, and we enjoy watching them soar to meet new challenges and opportunities.
Nearly 95% of Peabody School graduates transition into the accelerated academic tracks at area public high schools, while the remainder attend rigorous independent day or boarding schools. Peabody students frequently apply and are accepted to MESA (Math, Engineering and Science Academy) at Albemarle High School, HMSA (Health and Medical Science Academy) at Monticello High School, or ESA (Environmental Studies Academy) at Western Albemarle High School.
Peabody students graduate the 8th grade with high school credits in math, science, and foreign language. As a result, our students are regularly placed in Honors or AP classes their freshman year of high school, allowing greater flexibility in crafting their high school curriculum and room in their schedule for advanced or independent study.
Peabody graduates are highly engaged in their high school experience, often on a national level. They regularly succeed in competitions involving abstract math, music, dramatic performance, foreign language, forensics, creative writing, science and engineering. They participate in local and international service projects, and play on teams of varsity basketball, rowing, fencing, field hockey, football, lacrosse, soccer, swimming, tennis, track, and wrestling.
Our graduates have become high school valedictorians, National Merit Scholars, Governor’s School participants, and Rhodes Scholars and have received numerous academic and athletic scholarships to various colleges and universities, including the Echols, Rodman, and Jefferson Scholars at the University of Virginia.
We are incredibly proud of our Peabody Panther graduates, and we love when they come back to campus to see us!
