Our Home in the Virginia Highlands

Our 22-acre campus is situated in the New River Valley near the small town of Independence, Virginia. The property is located in Grayson County, whose motto is: Protector of Nature.

The New River is the oldest river in the Western Hemisphere and possibly the oldest river in the world. It flows south-to-north and stretches 320 miles, eventually merging with the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers and streaming into the Atlantic Ocean at the Gulf of Mexico.

Seal of Grayson county, VA

Oracle Campus is located in a region of the Blue Ridge Mountains nicknamed the “Virginia Highlands,” due to its striking similarity to the Scottish Highlands and because many Scots-Irish immigrants settled here.

Previously, the New River Valley was the hunting grounds of the Cherokee and other Native people, and our campus contains an indigenous burial site. To honor our forebears, we built the Turtle Island Labyrinth and Peace Pole Medicine Wheel.
