Here at Powhatan we believe education should inspire passion, curiosity, and creativity.
We believe learning should be active, authentic, immersive, and purposeful. We do this through interdisciplinary thinking, technical acuity, collaboration, and inquiry-based learning.
We offer an accelerated curriculum that provides a rigorous, yet developmentally appropriate, approach to the traditional subjects in English, math, social studies, and science. Our approach of educating the whole child includes character development, social and emotional growth and an inclusion of plenty of extras. Art, music, drama, outdoor education, world language and other ‘specials’ here at Powhatan continue to engage children while providing a well-rounded whole child education. We build confidence in young learners and teach them to think critically by embracing the 5 C’s. We do all of this in a nurturing, yet challenging, small PK-8 school community.
Powhatan’s goal is to develop a well-rounded student with a love of learning!
