Envision Richmond is an exciting Capstone experience that immerses our 8th Grade student body in the local community with an intensive leadership and civic engagement curriculum. For one full week every fall, 8th Graders leave the classroom and receive expansive opportunities to foster collaboration, empathy, creativity and problem-solving in ways that will serve them, and the world around them, for years to come. They continue to work in groups throughout the year to design a follow-on project relating to their community issue that is implemented each spring.
Envision Richmond gives our students the insight and tools to see beyond themselves and engage with our local community in a manner that helps them find purpose. A week spent outside the classroom learning about defining issues, programs and needs impacting the City of Richmond helps our students develop their role as responsible and engaged citizens at an early age.
