The 9th Grade World History students of BRVGS visited Washington, DC on March 6th and 8th.  Students and staff were fortunate to have beautiful weather on both days!  Students toured the World War II, Korea and Vietnam Memorials on the National Mall and also went to the U.S. National Holocaust Musuem.  Click on the BRVGS WH DC Reflections site  to see their photos and reflections.  Also click on BRVGS Photo Gallery for photos of some of the classes in Washington, DC.

Washington, DC Field Trip Still On for Tuesday March 6th!

With four of our schools closed due to today's snowfall, many people are asking about tomorrow's field trip for BRVGS World History students.  The trip is still scheduled to take place as planned - please contact BRVGS Director Marc Carraway at 434-989-3972 or by email at for any questions.


Shoes for Service

When it comes to community service, BRVGS seniors take on a wide variety of ways to help people.  For two of our seniors, service means providing people with shoes.  Seniors Justin Barden of Orange and Rachel Yowell of Madison each independently undertook "shoe drives" as the community service compenent of their BRVGS senior project.  Rachel completed her service in the fall semester by collecting over 300 pairs (as well as enough money to ship them off).  Justin was featured on NBC 29 for his efforts to get shoes to people in need.  His story can be seen by clicking on "Leaving a Footprint: Orange County Student Helps Community." We are very proud of these students and of all of our seniors' efforts in support of their communities! (photo courtesy of NBC 29)
