School Board Community Conversation and Forum

Due to low student participation numbers and in compliance with Virginia HIgh School League requirements, Charles City High School has canceled its fall football and volleyball sports seasons. 

In order to provide an opportunity for follow up and community engagement on the cancellation of these seasons, the CCPS School Board will host a Community Conversation/Forum at 6 PM on Tuesday, August 21, 2018 in the Charles City High School Auditorium prior to their Regular Meeting at 7 PM to dialog with parents, students and our community.

Student Athlete Seminar

There will be a Student Athlete Seminar held on August 23, 2018 at 7 p.m. in the CCHS Auditorium.  The seminar will become a requirement for all student-athletes who wish to participate in Charles City High School athletics for the upcoming year (for fall, winter, and spring sports) and will be reflected in the newest version of the athletic handbook. The seminar will last between 30-60 minutes and serve as an introduction to the requirements of what the student-athlete needs.

CCHS Makes National Ranking In U.S. News

Well….we did it! For the second year in a row, Charles City High School made the top state and national rankings of high schools, maintaining its consistent Bronze Medal Ranking in the nation (within the top 20% of high schools in the country) and moving up to what appears to be 71 in the rankings of top 118 high schools in their statewide rankings in Virginia. The link below should take everyone to the report and overview for the 2018 data:


While this is one ranking and set of indicator criteria, as I shared last year, the national nature and name-recognition that goes with this publication and their annual rankings of high schools, colleges and universities is significant.

Congratulations to our faculty and staff for their continued success.  We are pleased to be able to count our high school among the best in the state and the nation!
