Specialty Centers & Programs


Specialty Centers, located in each of the high schools and at three of the middle schools, offer Henrico County students choices to focus their learning experiences. The centers offer advanced courses to students who have clear interests and specific educational and/or career goals. The curriculum provides practical applications, encourages higher-level thinking and conveys information developed through educational partnerships with businesses, universities and community organizations. Attending a specialty center is an opportunity to concentrate on a specialized interest while completing a rigorous college-preparatory program.


Rising ninth-graders may apply to the specialty center of their choice. Each specialty center has specific requirements and testing as part of the admissions process. Informational sessions are held each fall for the following school year.


Transportation is arranged from the neighborhood bus stop and provided to each center. Students must complete the Pupil Transportation Student Registration Form which is mailed to new students and distributed to existing students during the spring.


To find out more about each specialty center, read our Specialty Center Brochure, click on the school of your choice, or contact the counselor at your school.
