Specialty Centers are located in each of the high schools and at three of the middle schools. They offer Henrico County students choices to focus their learning experiences. The centers offer advanced courses to students who have clear interests and specific educational and/or career goals. The curriculum provides practical applications, encourages higher-level thinking and conveys information developed through educational partnerships with businesses, universities and community organizations. Attending a specialty center is an opportunity to concentrate on a specialized interest while completing a rigorous college-preparatory program.
