Powhatan School believes that successful education creates lifelong learners who use their knowledge, creativity, and skills to be confident students in an ever-changing world.
Powhatan School believes in educating and challenging each individual academically, artistically, athletically, and ethically. Powhatan will expose its students to the finest teaching through a literature-based curriculum, an emphasis on the environment, and a spirit of inquiry. We believe in challenging, nurturing, and supporting our students to ensure
they will continue to learn and grow.
Powhatan’s educational philosophy views elementary and middle school
both as an important step in a life-long learning process that is to be cherished in and of itself. Powhatan’s admissions philosophy is inclusive rather than exclusive. We feel an obligation to serve as many students and abilities as our resources and mission will permit. While implementing a stimulating and challenging academic program, the faculty respect each student’s need and right to enjoy childhood and school. Powhatan School provides educational experiences that are appropriate for the learning style, age, and development of each child we serve.
