About HCPS

Henrico County Public Schools expresses a divisionwide commitment to every student by communicating a vision of inclusiveness: “The right to achieve. The support to succeed.” The school division also embraces four critical cornerstones: Student Safety and Wellness, Academic Growth, Equity and Opportunity, and Relationships.

The school division has a long history of academic excellence and opportunity and is recognized regularly as an educational leader in the Richmond area, in Virginia and beyond. The school system serves the families of Henrico County, Va., a diverse community of more than 330,000 which wraps west, north and east of the independent city and state capital of Richmond. Henrico is Virginia’s sixth-most populous locality, and HCPS is the commonwealth’s sixth largest public-school division.

The school division includes 75 schools and program centers in Henrico County. Our schools reflect the geographic and social diversity of Henrico County and lie in bustling near-urban and suburban settings; small towns; and quiet rural areas. Click here to view a map of the school division.
