Baccalaureate for Graduates Monday, June 5th

This interfaith event hosted by the Madison PTSA will be held at Vienna Presbyterian Church on Monday, June 5th at 6:00 pm and we welcome all seniors and their families to attend. We have chosen the following quote from the 2017 National Youth Poet Laureate, Amanda Gorman, as the theme for this year’s Baccalaureate:  “There is always light. If only we’re brave enough to see it. If only we’re brave enough to be it.”

Traditionally, the Madison Baccalaureate ceremony is a time of thought and reflection guided by the words of our seniors as well as leaders of many faiths. Our Madison Madrigals will sing and a Madison orchestral ensemble will perform.  We ask that all Seniors participating arrive by 5:40pm in their graduation gowns (no caps, stoles or cords) to line up for the procession.  Please email Beth Eachus at with questions.

World Language Department News

The World Language Department is pleased to announce the names of the students who will represent Madison at the 2023 Governor School’s World Language Academies. High schools in Fairfax County can only nominate two students per language. This year, we are very proud that all our nominees for the three languages we teach at Madison were selected by the VA Department of Education:
  • French: Sarah Bennett and Ananya Kumar
  • Latin: Sophia Hsu and Hanlin Zhang
  • Spanish: Charlotte Feigin and Nina Howell
Acceptance into this program is very competitive. Congratulations to our 6 students for their hard work! We look forward to hearing all about their three-week language experience in the Fall.
