High school English students in Mr. Christensen's Odyssey course enjoyed a game that simulated the Lotus Eaters scene in Homer's epic poem. With a goal of fully assembling a 500-piece jigsaw puzzle, students drew cards for each 5-minute round which designated them as "puzzle solvers" whose job it was to work together to assemble the puzzle, or "lotus eaters" who under the spell of the lotus flowers try to sabotage the puzzle-solving efforts by sneakily disassembling puzzle pieces, all the while "Odysseus" was charged with finding the lotus eaters and "breaking the spell" by winning a game of rock, paper, scissors.


The LSAS Groundhogs bested the Beavers of Ideaventions 38-34 in last Tuesday's nail-biter that came down to the final seconds of the game!

Como se dice "BOO"? Today our NJHS members took us on a trip around the world to see how Ecuador, Mexico and France celebrate spooky season! Our students sampled colada morada (a sweet beverage made with purple corn flour) and decorated guagua de pan (bread babies) while learning about Dia de los Difuntos in Ecuador, painted sugar skulls and placed photos on a Dia de los Mu***os ofrenda in Mexico, and learned about the tradition of placing chrysanthemums on La Toussaint in France. Thanks to Jake T. for his leadership, and Ms. Kathy, Niels and Madame Buld for sharing these traditions with us!

Our Story

Founded in 2008, Loudoun School for Advanced Studies is the only middle and high school for advanced students in Virginia.

Students work in a small, supportive community where school feels right and their ideas, interests, and highest aspirations really matter. Classes are small and are designed to encourage dialogue among teachers and peers. The setting is comfortable and the workload is reasonable. We believe this environment allows students to be and do their best.

The courses are built on great books and challenging questions, with the aim of helping students learn to think critically and creatively. Our teachers have doctorates or engineering degrees in their respective fields, allowing them to provide expert guidance and academic work designed to prepare students to be successful in higher education and in their professional lives.

At our school, teachers know their students, students know their peers, and together we work to help each other do great things.
