Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow

District Announcements

  • Welcome! 

    On behalf of Appomattox County School Board, the faculty and staff of Appomattox County Public Schools (ACPS), I welcome you to our website. 

    Located in Central Virginia, Appomattox is historically significant as it served as the stage for the Confederate Army’s surrender to end the American Civil War. We provide public education to approximately 2200 students in four schools. In each of our schools; Appomattox County High School (Grades 9-12), Appomattox Middle School (Grades 6-8), Appomattox Elementary School (Grades 3-5), and Appomattox Primary School (Preschool – Grade 2); we will engage students in meaningful, rigorous, and authentic learning experiences that will encourage relevant exploration of the state’s Standards of Learning and beyond and we are proud to announce that all of our schools are fully accredited by the Virginia Department of Education.  

    Our school division’s theme is “Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow” and our goal is to prepare every student with the skills needed to become productive and successful citizens on the local, state, national and/or global stage. We believe each child should have access to a high quality instructional team, up-to-date technology, and innovative lessons that will prepare our students to be career or college ready upon graduation. 

    I encourage you to explore our website and the links to each of our four schools’ websites.

    Go Raiders!

    Annette A. Bennett, Ed. D.
    Division Superintendent

  • Community Invited to Particpate in "Souper Bowl III"

    Appomattox Sr. FFA is hosting the 3rd “Souper Bowl” canned food drive during the week of August 20-24, 2018. Both Appomattox County and Buckingham County will be competing to collect the most non-perishable goods and charitable donations. The winning school division will be announced at halftime during the Appomattox v. Buckingham Varsity football game at Buckingham High School on Friday, August 24. Last year, the Raiders pummeled the Knights in the Souper Bowl and the Battle of the Axe. Families with students at AES, AMS, and ACHS may also bring donations to school. All community members and raider fans are invited to drop off donated non-perishable goods to the ACHS office during the week of August 20-24. FFA members will also collect donations at the entrance to Bragg stadium through the first quarter of the football game. Join the Raider Nation by cheering on our football team and also bringing donations to the game. All food and proceeds donated to the Raider cause will help stock food banks in Appomattox County. Please contact FFA Advisors Ed McCann, Elizabeth Duncan, and Hannah Simpson at 434-352-8396 for more information.
