Land Search Update

Friends of St. Dunstan’s Academy,
The spring was a busy time for the St. Dunstan’s project. In November of 2021 the school placed a contract on 260 secluded acres in Rockbridge County, Virginia, and spent the next months planning a campus and pursuing the necessary permits to build the school. Several generous donors pledged the money needed to purchase the land, and we prepared to begin building our campus.
At the end of the permit application process, the school was not able to obtain the County approvals needed.
Undeterred, and filled with anticipation, we have packed up and begun our land search anew. We are investigating several suitable sites in Orange County, Albemarle County, Campbell County, and Rockbridge County.
Please keep our search in your prayers. If you know of prospective sites or interested donors in the central Virginia area, please get in touch, and let us know! Our desire is to find the right place and begin building promptly so that we can begin fulfilling our mission to raise up godly men with an inspiring program. May the Holy Spirit bless our work and direct us to the right spot.
Grace and peace be with you all,
