Summary: In August of 2016, Albemarle County Public Schools began the planning process for reimagining the high school experience for our students. The initiative, known as High School 2022, aims to expand and ensure access to opportunities that will enrich not only our students’ education, but their lives. Rather than causing our students to adapt to existing high school structures, we aspire for our programming to respond to the unique needs of each individual student.

In conjunction with this work, the division sought to identify solutions to capacity issues at Albemarle High School. The development of the philosophical pedagogy of the High School 2022 program was a key first step in determining how our facilities must adapt to meet the needs of our programs and our students. As a second phase of the High School 2022 project, a facility planning study was launched in February 2017. ACPS contracted with HBA Architecture and Fielding Nair International to develop a plan to address our facility needs based upon our vision for the future of high schools. On October 10, HBA and FNI will be updating staff on their work to date prior to making a formal presentation to the board during the October 26 work session.
