Flint Hill School, founded in 1956, is a private, co-educational, college preparatory school, in Oakton, Virginia, in the United States. Its campus is located in Fairfax county, about 20 miles from Washington, D.C.

History[edit]

Flint Hill Preparatory School began in 1956 as a co-educational independent day school.

It was a K-8 school of 18 students who attended classes in the estate house belonging to the Francis Pickens Miller Family. The location is now the junction of Route 66 and Chain Bridge Road. In 1986, Flint Hill purchased 13 acres of property several blocks away at the corner of Chain Bridge and Jermantown Roads. In 1990, with the new academic building only partially finished and the funding for its completion in doubt, a group of educational and civic leaders from Northern Virginia, led by Mr. John T. Hazel, Jr., acquired the school, and reorganized it as Flint Hill School, a nonprofit educational organization.

The 1990-1991 academic year began on the new campus with 65 faculty members and an enrollment of 425 students, K-12. By the late 1990s, with more than 700 students there was a need to expand. In 1998, Flint Hill acquired several parcels of property totaling 30 acres within one mile of the existing campus. Classes began at the new facility on September 10, 2001. As of the 2013-14 academic year the school consisted of two campuses, more than 1,100 students and 200 faculty & staff members.

Athletics[edit]

The school participates in the ISL (Independent School League) for girls sports and the MAC (Mid-Atlantic Athletic Conference) for boys sports.
