student_learningAmherst County Public Schools offers a student-centered academic program that focuses on the relationships between talented students and capable and caring teachers. Our goal, Every Child, Every Day emphasizes the development of students’ passions and abilities.  

ACPS offers a challenging curriculum for all students starting with our pre-school programs, through elementary, middle, and high school. We continue to expand programs that are geared toward active strategies that involve the students with each other and with the subject matter. Students learn differently. To meet those different needs, our teachers are encouraged to offer students opportunities that support mastery of learning through portfolios, projects, presentations, and the traditional assessment format. 
Student with iPadThe ultimate goal is for students to exit ACPS being prepared for college or a career in our community or abroad. Advanced Placement courses, as well as, Career and Technical offerings allow students to forge a path that is right for them. Whatever the path chosen a rigorous academic experience is available for all students. Amherst County Public Schools is committed to supporting a student-centered academic program that contributes to a vibrant learning community.
