“Where do your students go when they graduate?”

It is a question we hear on a weekly basis from parents who are considering Powhatan for their children. The question arises on almost every campus tour;  where do your students go when they graduate? 

With a lovely commencement ceremony now behind us, it is a perfect time to update the annual answer to the question. This year, approximately 77% of our graduating class will matriculate to the public high schools in the region, while 23% will head to independent schools in the fall. We’ve compiled the full list for you below:


Members of the Powhatan School Class of 2016 will attend the following:
