Upcoming Events
ACPS Announcements
On behalf of the Appomattox County School Board and our staff, I welcome you to our website.  I encourage you to explore our website and our school websites.  Appomattox County is located in rural central Virginia.  We provide public education to approximately 2200 students who are enrolled in our four schools in the school division.  Those schools include Appomattox Primary School (Preschool – Grade 2), Appomattox Elementary School (Grades 3-5), Appomattox Middle School (Grades 6-8), and Appomattox County High School (Grades 9-12).  We are proud of our students and staff in ACPS.  Last year all four of our schools were fully accredited by the Virginia Department of Education.

Our theme for this year is Striving for Excellence.  Our goal is to engage every student in meaningful and rigorous work with high expectations.  We accomplish this through the use of innovative instructional practices, a guaranteed curriculum, and up-to-date technology.  We want our students to be motivated and hard workers in order to be career or college ready for a rapidly changing world.  ACPS aims to provide a high quality education for every child, filled with a wide range of academic, extra-curricular, and athletic opportunities.

FFA Member Recognized as State Star in Agribusiness
Jordan Moore of the Appomattox FFA Chapter was recognized as the State Star in Agribusiness during the 90th Virginia FFA State Convention which was held at Virginia Tech, June 20-23, 2016.  Her FFA advisors are Elizabeth Duncan and Ed McCann, Jr.

The Virginia FFA Association State Star awards are designed to recognize outstanding FFA members who have earned their State FFA Degree and excelled in their Supervised Agricultural Experience projects.  These awards are given to members who have successfully completed at least three years of agricultural education instruction, earned at least $1,000 or worked in excess of 300 hours, and been actively involved in FFA activities on all levels.  The State Star in Agribusiness Award recognizes one member who has successfully owned or been employed by an agricultural business.  The application requires the member to submit extensive information regarding their production and financial records.  Only one candidate per year is named the State Star in Agribusiness.  The state winner receives cash awards from the National FFA Organization and the Virginia FFA Foundation as well as a plaque.

Appomattox County High School Auto Mechanics Excels
This past Thursday April 14th the ACHS Auto mechanics had three students pass the written part of the State Inspection License program test.   Students still need to undergo a background check by the Department of State Police and the practical (Hands on) examination.  ACHS redesigned the Career and Technical education program with an emphasis to “get students job ready upon graduation”.  Master Trooper T.D. Lacks and Senior Trooper G.A. Smith are pictured administering the written State inspection test. Instructor David Cardwell has transformed the program from a regular class into a job training program.   The program has increased its state inspection testers by four hundred percent.   We congratulate the students and the instructor for building our community one child at a time.
Congratulations to   William Francis (Frankie) Hoffman, Dennis Alan Thomas, and Stephen Jacob Breeding.
