We learn not for school, but for life.


Welcome to Powhatan School!

pulse_headerWe invite you to visit and experience a day at Powhatan School! Join us and learn about our innovative literature-based curriculum, small classes, the NEAL program, our STEM initiatives, foreign languages and so much more! Teachers will be on hand to talk about what goes on in the classroom and give you a glimpse into the Powhatan Tradition. There is no better way to get a sense of what Powhatan School offers than by joining us for an Open House. All interested parents are invited to attend.

Open House & Shadow Day Options: We encourage prospective families to spend a school day with us through our Open House & Shadow Day programs. Students are immersed in the classroom for a day with their peers, while parents visit with administrators, teachers and students through a variety of programs. The Shadow Day option is available for students in grades 2-6.
