The mission/vision of the Powhatan County Public Schools is to provide the environment where each student is able to reach his or her fullest potential. It is recognized that true learning can take place only in an atmosphere of encouragement, respect, and academic challenge.
Inherent in this mission is the recognition that each student is a unique individual, capable of becoming a productive member of society. It is the responsibility of the employees of this school division, to guide, nurture, and encourage each student toward this goal. In doing so, all employees, and especially all members of our academic community, are accountable for the achievement of the students who are enrolled in this school division.
