The support to succeed.” The school division also embraces four critical cornerstones: Student Safety, Academic Progress, Closing Gaps and Relationships.

The school system serves the families of Henrico County, Virginia, a diverse community of more than 320,000 which wraps west, north and east of the independent city and state capital of Richmond. Henrico is Virginia’s fifth-most populous county.

HCPS is the sixth largest public school division in Virginia, and is comprised of 72 schools and program centers serving more than 50,000 students.

Academic excellence and opportunity are hallmarks of Henrico County Public Schools. Twenty-three division schools earned 2017 Virginia Index of Performance awards for advanced learning and achievement, presented by Gov. Terry McAuliffe and the Virginia Board of Education.
