Virtual specialty center open houses offer information about high school choices

Posted on

In addition to the broad spectrum of programs in each comprehensive high school, Chesterfield County Public Schools offers students the opportunity to participate in optional academic programs related to special academic interests. During their eighth-grade year, students can decide whether or not they wish to apply to a specialty center or Governor’s school.

Starting Monday, Oct. 26, Chesterfield families of eighth-grade students who are interested in learning more about these high school opportunities are invited to watch the virtual specialty center fair video at https://mychesterfieldschools.com/. To help students and their parents learn about the variety of high school options, Chesterfield County Public Schools encourages families to visit this resource on the district’s website, as it will share information about all 13 specialty centers, both Governor’s schools, and CodeRVA. Families are also encouraged to visit each of the specialty center websites that interest their child to learn more about each program.

Throughout the rest of October and November, virtual open houses will be offered for each specialty center and Governor’s schools to provide families with in-depth information about each specific site. You can learn more about specific virtual open houses by viewing this year’s specialty center calendar or by visiting that specialty center’s website for event details.

Specialty center applications, the student events calendar, links to each specialty center’s website, and more detailed information are all available here: http://mychesterfieldschools.com/schools/specialty-centers/.
