What is the Henrico Learner Profile?

In 2018, HCPS adopted the Henrico Learner Profile as the guide for how students can learn in a dynamic way, with traits that prepare them for the future. Henrico Schools wants students to exhibit “six Cs”: have quality character; be global citizens, be effective communicators and collaborators, and be critical and creative thinkers. The “how” of learning is a concept called the Deeper Learner Model, which states that the best learning:

  • Happens anytime, anywhere.
  • Is authentic and connected.
  • Is student-owned.
  • Is community-supported.

Did you know?

“Silence Hurts” is an anonymous way for students to report information about things that concern them. Any threat to a student’s safety can be reported using the online form, including concerns about bullying, drugs, suicide, gangs, violence or other threats. While administrators treat Silence Hurts reports with great seriousness, the service is not monitored in real-time; matters that are life-threatening or involve risk of injury should be addressed by calling 911.

To find Silence Hurts forms, go to the link at the upper left of your school’s home page. Your school’s site can be found by going to our list of elementary schools, middle schools and high schools and Advanced Career Education centers.
