Feeder Pattern & Attendance Area

Public schools in Albemarle County are divided into three “feeder patterns” according to geographical area: Northern, Southern and Western. A feeder pattern consists of the elementary, middle and high schools through which students progress.

Burley Middle School is part of both the Northern and Southern feeder patterns. Students previously attended Agnor-Hurt, Cale, Stone-Robinson, or Stony Point Elementary School, and will graduate from either Albemarle or Monticello High School.
