Henrico County High School Replacements

265,000 square feet each   |   Estimated completion 2021

Using Moseley Architects’ design of Glen Allen High School as a prototype, these replacement high schools are currently under construction and scheduled to open for the 2021-2022 school year. They are LEED registered and are on track to earn Silver certification.

The high schools are part of the county’s Building for the Future initiative. They also received grants in the state’s Design Virginia High School Innovation Network category to implement programs that promote Virginia Department of Education’s 5 Cs: critical thinking skills, collaboration skills, communication skills, creative thinking skills, and citizenship skills. On September 14, 2020, the Henrico Citizen reported the high schools are “becoming model ‘high schools of the future.'”
