Community High School is a small, secular, independent college preparatory high school grounded in the liberal arts, founded with a commitment to seminar-based classes, and located in Roanoke’s city center.
Our Mission is to foster creative and independent problem solvers with diverse backgrounds and abilities into scientifically and culturally literate, globally conscious, locally engaged citizens.
We Believe that students learn best when they are engaged in meaningful work in real world situations, and are encouraged to value both their accomplishments and failures in pursuit of their passions.
We Approach the Arts as an essential form of intellectual inquiry, and as a foundation of academic, emotional and social development.
We Partner with area colleges, universities, cultural and civic organizations, and provide cultural programming for the community at large.
Our Students are respected as individuals, are active in their education and responsible for their own success. Students are assessed against their own potential and rewarded for curiosity and initiative.
Our Community extends beyond our faculty and students, and we invite parents and siblings neighbors and cultural partners to be engaged in our mission.
