Education has remained as an important entity in Rockingham County history. The compiler's 1989 Rockingham County bibliography contained 279 citations on education.

A large number of sources from Eastern Mennonite University, including term papers, are available. Francis Wayland's magisterial history of Bridgewater College is a model in its scholarship. Emily Robertson's doctoral dissertation The Transformation of Madison College Into James Madison University: A Case Study well represents that university in scholarship. Public education is represented by Cecil Hartman's masters thesis A History of West Central Academy Rockingham County, Virginia.
