Our goal is to prepare every student for transition into post-secondary life whether that means higher education, the military or a good paying job.  

We are the smallest high school in Chesterfield County. This means there's a place for each of our students to stand out, whether that's in academics, athletics or any other aspect of student life.

Students receive a personalized education plan that emphasizes academic rigor, character development, career and technical education and workplace readiness.  We provide an education that's relevant for you while we meet all graduation requirements for either a Standard or Advanced Studies Diploma, through:

  • Small class sizes in all of our courses including honors and College-level dual enrollment and Advanced Placement courses
  • Unique electives only found at the Carver Academy
  • A personalized learning plan based on your college and career interests
  • Opportunities for job shadowing, internships or a college experience during your senior year
  • Certifications that verify your competence and readiness for a career in demand by business and industry
  • A faculty and staff that knows you and are dedicated to your success
