Germanna, UMW among Virginia Living’s top colleges for 2014
Virginia Living magazine’s State of Education issue, out this week, features the Old Dominion’s top high schools and colleges for 2014.

The University of Mary Washington was cited for science, math and technology for its master’s degree program in geospatial analysis.
Fredericksburg Academy, for its use of digital media in the classroom, and Orange County Public Schools, for its computer science and information technology program, were cited for excellence in science, math and technology.
