Massanutten Military Academy recently sold a residential building in Woodstock to a family for $560,000.

In late May, the academy sold its 112 Indian Springs Road property in Woodstock that had been used since 1966 as a house for the head of the school. In recent years, however, the building has not been used and was no longer serving a purpose. The 2,805-square-foot house, which is directly across the street from the academy’s campus, was built on 2.44 acres in 1965. It has four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

William Magruder, chairman of the Massanutten Military Academy board of trustees, says the school no longer had a reason to continue owning the property.

Money received from the sale will be put into the school’s endowment, which Magruder explained will help create and support scholarships.

“The kids are our mission,” he said.

The academy has owned and sold off campus residential properties over the years, and Magruder said “we take the proceeds and invest it into the school.”

“It allows us to continue to focus on what’s important for us, which is student outcome,” he said of selling the house.
