Lynnhaven's unique environment delivers a challenging college-prep curriculum infused with art, hands-on projects, collaboration, and experiential learning. Small classes are taught creatively without the pressures of high stakes testing getting in the way. Your child's social-emotional growth isn't left out of the equation at here. Lynnhaven is school the way it should be. Finding Lynnhaven changed our lives for the better.

What a wonderful place. Can't say enough good things about Lynnhaven. They offer the rigor my son needs as well as the compassion and understanding to help him recover his confidence. They provide an experience unlike any other school with real hands-on learning and exposure to all Richmond has to offer.
