5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
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.
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 will 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.
The ticket booth will open around 12:00 p.m. to purchase tickets. No one will be allowed admission to the stadium until that time as it will be closed in preparation of the game. Just a reminder that tickets are $7.00 due to this being a region football game. No ACHS passes will be accepted.
We look forward to seeing you at the game to help support our Varsity Football team.
We wish you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving.
School resumes Monday, November 30.
This took tremendous work from everyone in ACPS. All employees and students deserve a huge round of applause! Thank you for your dedication and commitment in the job you do for our students each day. We also appreciate parent and community support in this huge accomplishment.

Congratulations to all those who have worked so hard to improve the graduation outcomes for our students in Appomattox County.
The new Appomattox County HS Computer Systems Technology program and its instructor, Jason Clark, will offer a special free service to the public. The students of the program will run and operate a FREE AFTERSCHOOL computer repair helpdesk within the high school as they accomplish their CompTIA A+ certifications. The instructor will be in direct charge of the students as they work. It's a community service outreach, student skills OJT development, and public relations combined into one program.
Agricultural education prepares students for successful careers and a lifetime of informed choices in the global agriculture, food, fiber and natural resources systems. The FFA chapter at ACHS is a 3-star National Chapter award recipient. Student leaders are engaged in developing members’ potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success. Teachers employ differentiated, diverse and hands on teaching strategies that engage students in high order critical thinking. Students in the production agriculture and veterinary science programs manage a 30 acre land laboratory with cattle, swine, sheep and goats. Students learn to operate a variety of the latest metal fabrication technologies such as a CNC plasma cutter, milling machine, MIG and TIG welder, sheet metal brake and other tools in the new Emerging Agricultural Technologies Welding course. Every student completes a Supervised Agricultural Experience project, an at home work-based learning program. Students leave the program ready for the next step.
