School Notes

  • Community High School is a small, secular, independent school located in downtown Roanoke. Our curriculum emphasizes critical thinking in preparation for a rigorous liberal arts education. Classes operate in a college-seminar based format and are taught by a highly and widely qualified faculty committed to the progressive tradition.  The downtown campus allows our students direct access to many of Roanoke`s cultural institutions. Our students come from backgrounds diverse by faith, ethnicity, interest and economic position-we have never lost a student to financial need-and are committed to becoming responsible, culturally literate, globally conscious, and locally engaged citizens.
  • Our Mission is to develop creative and independent problem solvers with diverse backgrounds and abilities who will be scientifically and culturally literate, globally conscious, locally engaged citizens.
