Powhatan students LOVE a challenge!

We have an accelerated curriculum that provides a rigorous, yet developmentally appropriate, approach to the traditional subjects in English, math, social studies, and science. Our aim 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. We do all of this in a nurturing, yet challenging, small PK-8 school environment.

This is the perfect time to begin the process with us. We encourage you to visit with us during the Spring Open House & Shadow Day!
