A Solid Foundation

For more than 70 years, Walsingham Academy has served Williamsburg and the surrounding area as the premier pre-K through 12 co-educational, Catholic-based independent school. Founded by the Sisters of Mercy on the principal values of compassion and service, Walsingham offers an unparalleled academic experience to students of all faiths.

The Walsingham Way encourages students to lead lives of purpose and impact. We believe that resilience, perseverance, and empathy are all things that can — and should — be taught in the classroom. The result: alumni that use their education and influence to make the world a better place.
