Charlottesville’s long history of prioritizing education is exemplified in our many schools. Not only are the public school systems exceptional, but our area boasts more private-school opportunities per capita than most, offering everything from competitive college-prep programs (with boarding options) to schools based on the teachings of alternative leaders in education. Charlottesville City Schools, Albemarle County Schools and area private schools believe in the evidence behind exposing students to a wide variety of experiences, viewpoints and opportunities so they can develop their own interest areas and strengths. From fine arts, STEM technologies and academies, and computer availability to project-based learning, immersion language curriculums and multi-age classrooms, students have the tools needed to learn and apply in all aspects of life.
