Serving preschool through twelfth grade, the school welcomes students from the counties of Pasquotank, Currituck, Camden, Perquimans, Gates, and Chowan, who represent a variety of multi-cultural backgrounds. For over thirty years, the private school has educated young men and women who have become leaders in their communities and have graduated from a variety of post-secondary settings including Duke University, constituent institutions of the University of North Carolina system, Campbell University, Davidson College, Elon College, Randolph-Macon College, and many others. With new, dedicated leadership, the school is rapidly expanding its program from within and has also sought cooperative agreements with other educational institutions and businesses to broaden its academic horizons.

     Mutual respect and parental involvement in every aspect of the school community continue to be the cornerstone of strength on which the success of Albemarle students is founded. With that sort of support and cooperation the Board of Directors, administrators, and the faculty look with enthusiasm toward a new degree of commitment with a mission that boldly declares "to inspire excellence and character in a nurturing environment."
