Since our launch in 2021, the team at Washington College Academy has worked tirelessly to protect and promote our history. We are fortunate to have volunteers from all walks of life who bring their unique expertise and resources to everything we do. Our volunteer network is one of the reasons we are able to achieve our yearly goals.

While there is always more that can be done, there is no doubt that we are making significant progress. We don’t measure our success through just facts and figures, but through enlightened faces
and excited feedback.   

The museum is open during most events.  Private group tours of the museum and campus are available from late Spring to Late Fall.  This is free to the public but donations are appreciated.  Please call the office or use our contact page if you are interested.  See our Volunteer page if you would like to be one of our history volunteers.

Making History tshirt_edited_edited.png


From the early beginnings in 1780, Rev. Samuel Doak started the school in a small log cabin near the site of the current school. Through The Revolutionary War, the Civil War and the Great Depression, the school survived through good times and bad.  Tales of great bravery, Indian raids, battles, fire, feast and famine abound in the history of the school and the surrounding areas. 


Named after, and with permission from George Washington, the school boasts a long list of accomplished graduates from the early times to our more recent history.  Over 240 years of history is a long but fascinating story.  If you would like to learn more,  please enjoy the 10 page overview of our history by clicking the .pdf button below.
