Henrico County Public Schools expresses a divisionwide commitment to every student by communicating a vision of inclusiveness: “The right to achieve. 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. The division’s schools reflect the geographic diversity of Henrico County, and lie in bustling near-urban and suburban settings; small towns; and quiet rural areas.

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. HCPS was again tops in the Richmond region with the most schools earning the distinction. Short Pump Middle School was one of only nine schools in the commonwealth to earn the highest designation.

HCPS also leads central Virginia in teachers certified by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. Completion of the rigorous process is the profession’s highest mark of accomplishment.

Henrico Schools has robust programs and support services for families of students with special needs; gifted students; homebound and homeschooled students; and students learning English as a second language.

Each of the division’s high schools is fully accredited and hosts an academic specialty center. The specialty centers allow students with clear interests the chance to focus on a preferred area, such as engineering, the arts or world languages. Three middle schools offer the International Baccalaureate Middle Years program and two high schools offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma program.

The division also has cutting-edge programs in career and technical education, at individual schools and at two Advanced Career Education centers.
