Principal's Message

I am so excited to join the Matoaca High School family. I have had the pleasure of working for Chesterfield County Public Schools since 1995. My first teaching assignment was biology and chemistry at Manchester High School. My husband also has chosen to spend his educational career with Chesterfield and is an exceptional education teacher at Bailey Bridge Middle School. I have two children, both current Chesterfield County Public Schools students.

On behalf of the administration and staff, welcome to Matoaca High School. It is the mission of all Matoaca staff members to prepare our students for their future, whatever it is that they choose. This occurs when students, teachers, counselors, administrators, staff, and parents work together to support and encourage the students to set goals and put in the work needed to achieve them.

Our students showed their Warrior spirit this past school year (2015-2016). Some highlights include:
  • Matoaca High School Band earned Virginia Honor Band status;
  • Wrestling won the State Championship for a third consecutive year; 
  • Boys Soccer Team - 2016 Conference 12 Tournament Champions;
  • Girls Tennis Team - 2016 Conference 12 Tennis Tournament Champions;
  • Girls Softball Team - 2016 Conference 12 Softball Tournament Runner-Up;
  • Girls Soccer Team - 2016 Conference 12 Soccer Tournament Runner-Up; and
  • Seniors received over 2 million dollars in scholarship monies.
These listed accomplishments are just a few and do not even touch upon the daily good that our students do through community service.
We are looking forward to another school year filled with Warrior Pride both outside and inside the classrooms. Chromebooks will be distributed in September and I know that the Matoaca teaching staff have been working hard to prepare lessons that will utilize the Chromebooks and engage your students. I can’t wait to see the great things that will be done with them!

I hope that you find the information on this website useful. Please take a few moments to look over the start of the school year information listed on the website. Check back to it often, as we update it frequently with announcements and new information. Also, remember to check ParentVue to monitor your student’s success with attendance, assignments and grades. If you have difficulty accessing ParentVue, contact our Synergy manager, Stacy Bradshaw at stacy_bradshaw@ccpsnet.net regarding your account.

We are excited for the coming year and we hope that you and your student(s) are also excited to continue the proud Matoaca Warrior tradition.

With Warrior Pride,

Belinda Merriman
