Powhatan School was established in 1948 by a dedicated group of parents of elementary-aged children who were committed to providing an enriching and rigorous atmosphere for learning. At that time, the school was located just down the road in a small, red schoolhouse in Millwood, Va. Seventy years later Powhatan is a vibrant and bustling hub for students and faculty alike.
