Welcome to The Arc of Loudoun at the Paxton Campus!

Our programs are located on the historic Paxton Campus in Leesburg, VA, a property with a long history of serving children and families in need.   In 1922, Rachel Paxton had a vision:  She wanted her incredible home and property to serve and benefit needy children.  She created the Margaret Paxton Memorial for Convalescent Children, in honor of her deceased daughter.  Over the years, the property has served as a convalescent center, an orphanage and a day care center.  In 1967, a group of parents with children with disabilities also had a vision: They formed The Arc of Loudoun, a 501(c)3 organization, to start a preschool to serve their children when no one else would.  In 2009, these visions united, forming The Paxton Campus, which has grown into a full service organization with multiple programs that create an innovative learning environment for children of ALL abilities so that they may THRIVE in the community.
