Similar to other cities in the surrounding area, modern Alexandria has been profoundly influenced by its location near D.C. Much of the population (around 139,000 according to 2010 census figures) works in the U.S. military, the federal civil service, or for a federal government private contractor. There is also an abundance of job opportunities available in a variety of industries. The climate features mild to cool winters and hot summers. Those families with children of school age appreciate the topnotch public school system in addition to the presence of some of the area's premier private schools: St. Agnes and St. Stephen's, Episcopal High School and Bishop Ireton High School. There are also 45 schools of higher education within a 50-mile radius including George Mason University and Marymount University.
