Leader in Me


St. Matthew’s School is proud to be a Lighthouse School. On April 24, 2018, St. Matthew’s was designated as one of 385 Lighthouse Schools Worldwide. We are extremely proud of the honor of this designation, as it recognizes that St. Matthew’s is a Beacon for others to Model. The Leader In Me Program is based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.  Please click here for more information.


The Virginia Purple Star Designation is awarded to military-friendly schools that have demonstrated a major commitment to students and families connected to our nation’s military. St. Matthew’s School is very proud to be recognized as a Virginia Distinguished Purple Star School.  We have an exceptionally strong connection with our armed forces. A large portion of our student population is from military families.
