History and Demographics

Culpeper County High School was built in 1969, expanded in 2001 and significantly renovated between 2013- 2015. The building is split into three levels. The main floor houses administrative offices, a library, studio, auditorium, cafeteria, and 65 classrooms. The second level houses administrative offices, the gymnasium and 16 classrooms. The third level houses a weight room, two shops, and three classrooms. The school does host a Culinary Arts program, which is located on campus in an adjacent building.

In an effort to encourage continuing improvement in technology, interactive learning, and communication, during the renovation classrooms were equipped with state-of-the-art technological equipment. Teachers have wireless laptops, Promethean Boards, document cameras, classroom web-pages, voicemail, e-mail, and LCD Projectors. Computer mobile labs are available for teachers and students to use to engage and promote the skills in the use of computer technology.

In addition to courses on the CCHS campus, students can apply to participate in specialized programs that meet at off-campus locations. A cohort of CCHS students attend Mountain Vista Governor’s School to take advanced math, science, humanities, and research courses once they enter their junior and senior years. Additionally, through a partnership with Germanna Community College students are offered the opportunity to enroll in Germanna Scholars, the successful completion of the Germanna Scholars program allows students to earn an Associate’s degree prior to high school graduation.
