Although Farmville is a small town of approximately 6,500 residents, it is the hub of commercial activity for over 100,000 people within a 30-mile radius. The population from which the School draws is economically and socially diverse. Parents often work multiple jobs to pay tuition, recognizing it is an investment for a lifetime. For them, Fuqua School provides the opportunity for their children to pursue an academic program which will lead to higher education.
Fuqua School is an independent, co-educational, non-sectarian day school, which enrolls over 300 students in pre-kindergarten through grade twelve. These students reside in rural Southside Virginia in eleven counties: Amelia, Appomattox, Buckingham, Charlotte, Cumberland, Halifax, Lunenburg, Mecklenburg, Nottoway, Powhatan, Prince Edward. Transportation to and from the School is provided daily with routes extending as far as 60 miles from Farmville.
Fuqua School seeks to be inclusive by serving all interested and qualified students in the area.
