Lots of news for the New Year in BRVGS!

Although the weather has provided a cold and uneven start to the first few days of the 2018 spring semester, there is still a lot going on with BRVGS.  Here are a few things worth noting as we get the new year under way:

  • Over the next few weeks, BRVGS will be working with students in the classes of 2019 to share online course opportunities for the 2018-19 chool year.  Parents and students should be on the lookout for the BRVGS Program of Studies and registration info for courses soon.

  • Congratulations to the Goochland and Fluvanna South America “Virtual Museum” website team - they won the BRVGS “Museum Madness” website contest than ran over the holidays.  The team will treat their classes to pizza or doughnut parties (their choice!) in the next couple of weeks.  You can see the winning site at:

  • BRVGS/Madison County High School senior Claudia Gohn was featured as the CBS 19 Newsplex “Student Athlete of  the Week” in the last week of December.  Like many BRVGS students, Claudia is as accomplished outside of the classroom as she is in school!  You can see an article and news video on Claudia’s accomplishments at:

  • BRVGS/William Monroe junior Tim Chochran is one of 3 state finalists for the Virginia Voice of Democracy audio essay contest.  As a finalist, Tim is guaranteed a scholarship award of at least $500.  The winner will be announced at a banquet later in January.

  • BRVGS member districts received over 300 applications for entry into the BRVGS class of 2022.  The prior record number of applicants was 288.  Big thanks go out to all of the counselors and administrators who have managed the application process in their local school districts!


In addition to the news above, BRVGS will be kicking off spring projects at field trips in most classes over the next several weeks.  We are looking forward to a great start to 2018, and to working with parents, students and staff in the new year!
