We are very proud to be recognized as a Virginia Distinguished Purple Star School. St. Matthew’s has an exceptionally strong connection with our armed forces. A large portion of our student population is from military families.
Additionally, our Principal is a retired Navy Commander and many of our teachers and staff are either retired military service members or are spouses of active military service members. This gives us a unique, first-hand perspective and the ability to understand the emotional and psychological challenges that service members’ children must face.
