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)

Welcome Back, Louisa County!

BRVGS wishes the students and staff of Louisa County High School a great start to the rest of the school year as they move into their new modular high school.  LCHS students have been sharing space with Louisa Middle School for three days a week since last fall's earthquake.  The move to to the new space will allow the school to resume a more regular 5-day per week schedule, so this is a big step forward for their recovery.  Best of luck to LCHS for the remainder of the year in your new space!
