My wife has been accepted into an out-of-state grad program, so we will be moving at the end of July. When do I tell my employer that I'm leaving?

I love this job. I was working awful, soul-crushing jobs before this one, but four years ago I landed this great job with this small, family-owned company and I have been so happy. I have not had my annual review yet.
Do I tell them now, before my review? Do I tell them at my review? Or do I tell them at the beginning of July?
My concern is not so much, "Oh, I feel guilty leaving them." I fully understand that it's a business and they don't owe me anything, nor I them, etc. etc. My concern is more logistics. How long can I expect them not to find out? What if I have to go down to Virginia for job interviews? I have no idea how the process of finding an out-of-state job works. If I have to ask for time off at short notice, more than once or twice, won't things seem fishy?
