Finding the Right Fit

Private colleges in Virginia provide a smaller, more personalized educational experience, and a wide range of graduate and professional degree programs. Many students prefer this learning environment compared to sprawling public institutions. Currently more than 135,000 students have chosen to enroll in Virginia private colleges.
Located in every region of the state, our institutions offer a great variety of educational settings. There are single-sex and co-educational institutions, historically black campuses and religious colleges – each have a rich history and distinct character. Some are highly selective, while others serve a broader range and appeal to the average college-bound student.
