Mission, Vision and Values
Unleashing Each Student's Potential


Our Mission

The core purpose of Albemarle County Public Schools is to establish a community of learners and learning, through relationships, relevance, and rigor, one student at a time.

Our Vision

All learners believe in their power to embrace learning, to excel, and to own their future.

Our Core Values

We believe in meaningful learning that stretches people to the frontiers and boundaries of their abilities.
Young People
We believe young people deserve the best we have to offer.  Each individual child is capable and has the right to safety, mutual respect, and learning.
We believe in our collective responsibility to work together in a cooperative effort to achieve common goals by building communities of practice, establishing a high quality learning community, and listening to the community.
We believe in treating all individuals with honor and dignity.
