Principal’s Message

Welcome to The Academy of Virginia Randolph!

 

We are the home to exceptional students we call Noble Knights and home to an amazing staff who we call “Legacy Bearers!”   At AVR we are very proud of the legacy of our founder Miss Virginia Randolph.  Miss Randolph was a revolutionary educator during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.  She believed in “educating the hands, the eyes, the feet and the soul.” It is upon this great educator’s foundation that we continue her Legacy by providing opportunities for our students to achieve success.  To read more about our great founder please go to this article: https://richmondmagazine.com/news/richmond-history/educator-virginia-estelle-randolph/.

 

Our students experience a smaller campus, smaller class sizes, a Social Emotional Support team, an individualized plan towards graduation, 12 different trade programs, credit recovery opportunities, and mentoring.    In our program building relationships with students is our greatest strength. 

 

Our mission is to empower students to achieve their highest academic potential by graduating and becoming employed, enlisted or enrolled in post-secondary opportunities.

Living the Legacy,

 

Jesse M. Casey M. Ed.
