Our goal is to prepare every student for transition into post-secondary life whether that means higher education, the military or a good paying job.

We are the smallest high school in Chesterfield County. This means there’s a place for each of our students to stand out, whether that’s in academics, athletics or any other aspect of student life.

  • Small class sizes in all of our courses including honors and College-level dual enrollment and Advanced Placement courses
