School Leadership

From Head of School Cathy McGehee

Foxcroft School’s tradition of academic excellence and opportunity for women has been firmly established for more than 100 years. Yet, our mission to help each girl explore her unique voice and develop the skills, confidence, and courage to share it with the world has never been more relevant.

Here, girls enjoy unique learning experiences in and out of the classroom, supported by expert faculty who know and value each individual. Our students live in a supportive, inclusive residential community situated on 500 beautiful acres in Virginia’s countryside and form lifelong friendships with girls from across the United States and the world.

Whether you are passionate about science and technology, have a dramatic flair for stage performance, or ride horses as a competitive sport, Foxcroft’s many offerings promote deep learning that comes from real-world experiences, challenging work, and much fun!

I look forward to meeting you and your family soon.

Head of School

What’s so important is that we prepare girls for their futures not what our futures were, and part of that is the unknown. Things are changing so rapidly in the workforce with emerging technologies and our global economy, so our girls have to be critical thinkers and problem solvers, they have to bring creativity to bear in what they do, they have to have a sense of cultural competence, and they have to be able to collaborate and work on teams. These are all the skills that our curriculum helps girls learn.Cathy McGehee, Head of School
