“Heart, Head and Hands”
The need for imagination, a sense of truth and a feeling of responsibility: these are the three forces which are the very heart of education.

Further Information for Prospective Donors:

The Need for Alternative Education

Hearthstone serves families who prefer its individualized, interdisciplinary, hands-on approach to learning or whose children are not learning, not happy, underserved or under-challenged elsewhere. Some students attend Hearthstone from nursery school through graduation in 12th grade; others transfer from other schools at various ages. Hearthstone also supports the homeschooling community by offering part-time participation in classes and activities such as art, music, dance, language, and sports. Finally, Hearthstone is a resource for all area educators, developing and sharing innovative educational methods with other teachers and schools.

The Challenge: Developing Financial Stability

Hearthstone’s objective for financial stability is to meet increased enrollment and to achieve long-range fiscal stability. Hearthstone has undertaken a major renovation project in its new location on commercial land on Route 211 in Sperryville, Virginia, adjacent to Shenandoah National Park. The new school has the capacity to serve 80 students.. There is ample space to support all school activities as well as after-school, evening, weekend, and summer enrichment programs to benefit the whole community.

Please contact Jane Mullan at 540-987-9212 or email for more information, to arrange a visit, or to see a copy of the school’s Case Statement.
