Prospective Student Information
The Specialty Center Application for Henrico County Public Schools will be available 11/16/20.
Current HCPS students will complete the application online. Once you get the application, take your time and present yourself in the best light possible. The committee reads everything you write, and your responses are very important.
All applicants will take a standardized test. Due to the pandemic, plans for that testing are still in development. Details forthcoming.
All applicants will submit a video introduction of themselves. HCPS students will submit via a Schoology Dropbox; non-HCPS students may submit via a link on YouTube or Vimeo, or may include a flashdrive with their application. Please save the file as an .mp4 or .mov file. If you have problems, contact Mr. Peck at email@example.com
You can find specific information about the APPLICATION PROCESS at this link.
The entire application will be submitted in January. Some middle school counseling departments will help students compile applications; check with your school counselor about their policy and deadlines for submission.
Contact Mr. Peck at (804) 673-3700 or at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
Prospective students and parents are encouraged to learn more about the Leadership Center program by coming to our online Open House on December 1, 2020. At that event you will have an opportunity to meet current students and faculty, hear about the program in detail, and ask any questions that you might have. We hope to see you there.
