HCPS’ extended learning opportunities include a variety of programs to meet the needs of students. Included are Edgenuity, the Evening School of Excellence and HCPS Summer Academy.


Edgenuity is an online learning program that assists students with credit recovery, SOL-remediation, and earning initial credits. HCPS currently uses Edgenuity in all high schools and nontraditional programs, and in several middle schools. All Edgenuity courses are monitored by a licensed HCPS teacher and are taken along with regularly scheduled classes at the student’s comprehensive school.

Evening School of Excellence

The HCPS Evening School of Excellence serves high school students, and is designed to help students get back on track. The program provides an opportunity for students to complete coursework and recover credits needed for graduation through evening classes offered at two sites — Highland Springs High School and the Academy at Virginia Randolph. The instructional program addresses the learning styles of students through smaller classes, more individualized attention, differentiated teaching strategies and online course offerings. Students are referred through their home school administrator or school counselor. Please note that there is an additional fee to take Evening School of Excellence courses.

Summer Programs

Henrico County Public Schools provides a variety of educational opportunities for students during the summer. A comprehensive summer school program either in person or online is offered to all elementary, middle and high school students. Please note that additional fees may be required for some summer courses.
