Powhatan School is a K-8 independent co-ed day school located in Boyce, Virginia at the northern end of the Shenandoah Valley. Our student body draws from a broad geographical area consisting of three states and seven school districts. Our families come from Virginia (Clarke County, Fauquier County, Frederick County, Loudoun County, Warren County and Winchester City), Maryland, and West Virginia
Powhatan’s educational philosophy views elementary and middle school as important steps in a lifelong learning process that is to be cherished in and of itself. With an emphasis on a literature-based curriculum, the school offers opportunities for intellectual enrichment and personal growth through study that crosses the academic disciplines. With a strong math and science program, we provide instruction in music, art, drama, public speaking, athletics, and computer technology as well as participation in extra-curricular activities.
Powhatan School believes that successful education creates lifelong learners who use their knowledge, creativity, and skills to be confident students in an ever-changing world. We learn not for school but for life is our guiding principle.
