St. Anne's-Belfield School (also called St. Anne's or STAB) is a co-educational, private boarding and day school for pre-kindergarten through 12th grade.

The school is located on 49-acres[1] in Charlottesville

History

The origins of the school date back to the founding of the Albemarle Female Institute in the 1850's [2] at the intersection of 10th and Jefferson Streets. By 1910[3], the school was failing and was purchased by a man named Henry Lee, who renamed it St-Anne's School[2]. In 1939, St. Anne's was moved to a property on Ivy Road that had formerly been owned by journalist Elizabeth Wetmore. By 1975, the school merged with the neighboring Belfield School[2].

Capital campaign

A recent capital campaign raised $44,000,407.21[2]. The money will be used to build an endowment, build a new arts center as well as a renovation of the old Belfield campus[2].
