“Where do your students go after they graduate?”

It is a question we hear on campus tours from parents who are considering Powhatan for their children;  where do your students go after they graduate? 

With the excitement of last week’s commencement ceremony still fresh in our minds, it is a perfect time to update the annual answer to this question. This year, approximately 68% of our graduating class will matriculate to the public high schools in the region, while 32% will head to independent schools in the fall. We’ve compiled the full list for you below.
