Henrico County Public Schools expresses a divisionwide commitment to every student by communicating a vision of inclusiveness: “The right to achieve. The support to succeed.” The school division also embraces four critical cornerstones: Student Safety and Wellness, Academic Growth, Equity and Opportunity, and Relationships.

The school system serves the families of Henrico County, Virginia, a diverse community of more than 320,000 which wraps west, north and east of the independent city and state capital of Richmond. Henrico is Virginia’s fifth-most populous county.

HCPS is the sixth largest public school division in Virginia, and is comprised of 72 schools and program centers serving more than 50,000 students. The division’s schools reflect the geographic diversity of Henrico County, and lie in bustling near-urban and suburban settings; small towns; and quiet rural areas.

Dr. Amy E. Cashwell became superintendent of Henrico County Public Schools in July of 2018. A longtime educator, Cashwell comes to Henrico with a wealth of experience and a passion for public education.
