About the Provider

Description: In the spring of 1969, a group of dedicated citizens and parents felt that an alternative choice of higher education was needed in the Halifax County area. The charter was written and The Halifax Academy, A Christian School, Inc. was born.

A fifteen-acre tract of land, gifted by Mr. William Shearin, operated grades one through ten in mobile units the first year.

Halifax Academy has experienced remarkable growth since its birth in 1969. During the 1970-71 school year, a building was erected to supplement the mobile units. A gymnasium with a seating capacity of 900 was also added.

In the spring of 1986 an elementary building was added which included eight new classrooms, a teacher’s lounge, and guidance office.

In the summer of 1989, with funds raised by the Athletic Council, a weight room, and a coach’s office were added to the gymnasium.

The present 31 acre campus includes a high school building, middle school wing, a elementary building, a library, a guidance office, a cafeteria, gymnasium, and several mobile units. Since 2000 Halifax Academy has seen considerable growth. Doublewide trailers were purchased in 2000 and 2001. During the summer of 2002, four classrooms were built for the fifth and sixth grades. Two years later classrooms were added for Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten. The cafeteria was renovated the summer of 2005. The summer of 2006 four more classrooms were added.

Halifax Academy has operated with the aid and support of the parents and loyal friends in the Roanoke Valley area.
