Plan a Visit

Inquire We love visitors! Plan your visit today. 

One of the great things about being a relatively small school with very highly engaged students and faculty is that RHS is a fun and welcoming place for students and parents to take a tour, or spend a day. Visitors are welcome year-round by appointment, and are also warmly invited to our Open Houses and special events. To plan your visit today, please email our Director of Admissions, Eric Swartzentruber, or call 434.984.1952. 

Parent & Student School Tours

A great first introduction to Renaissance School is to come meet our Head of School and Director of Admissions, and receive a tour of the school with one of our student ambassadors. Learn about our faculty, special programs, student interests, and all of the things that make RHS such a unique school. Ask questions, schedule an admissions interview, or just enjoy getting to know Central Virginia’s college prep school for high ability students!

Come to an Open House

Open House is a wonderful way to get to know RHS! Each one is a little different, but often Open Houses include faculty and student panels for parents and visiting students, special events or performances, and the opportunity to sign up for an admissions interview. Open Houses also combine the best elements of visiting for a day and tours, with the opportunity for students to participate in classes, and for parents to tour our historical Court Square building. Open House is a lot of fun and we look forward to it each semester!

COVID UPDATE -Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Renaissance School Open Houses will continue to be virtual. If circumstances change and safe, in-person Open Houses become possible, we will post that information on our website. Check back often!

The Open House Schedule for 2021-22 is:

Monday, November 8 
Monday, February 14
Monday, April 18

Middle & Elementary School Class Collaborations

Our students make great teachers! We have been thrilled to host elementary and middle school classes for a morning or afternoon, or to send our students to visit classrooms. Our students have taught classes in genetics, finance, art, geology, and a variety of other topics, hosting hands-on workshops that are fun and educational! If you are a parent or educator who would like to help arrange a special workshop for your child or classroom, please email our Director of Admissions, Eric Swartzentruber, or call 434.984.1952.
