Miller School History

Miller School began with the vision of Samuel Miller, a 19th-century mercantilist born into poverty in 1792, educated through the good graces of others, and steeped in philanthropy upon achieving financial success in adulthood. At a time when only the financially capable could afford education, Mr. Miller maintained his vision for a school that would educate students seeking to maximize their potential regardless of their financial circumstances. Upon his death in 1869, Mr. Miller left the balance of his substantial estate to start Miller School in the Ragged Mountain hills where he grew up in western Albemarle County, Virginia. The Miller School of Albemarle opened its doors in August, 1878, and has been preparing girls and boys for college, adulthood, and life ever since. Through more than 125 years, Miller School has had various incarnations - as a manual labor school, military school, and college preparatory academy; as an all-male institution that became one of the first coeducational schools in the region in 1884, then flipped back to all-male and back to coeducational again, ultimately leading to the coeducational college preparatory school for girls and boys in grades 8-12 & PG that it is today. Throughout those eras, Miller School has held constantly to Samuel Miller's vision of providing educational opportunities to willing and receptive students regardless of their financial condition. Today, Miller School is home to students from around Virginia, around the United States, and around the world (with over 15% of its student body coming from foreign countries spanning the globe).
