Schools and Child Care

School Enrollment

Children between the ages of five and 18 are required to attend school, whether it’s public school, home-school, or private school. All children in the United States are entitled equal access to a basic public elementary and secondary education regardless of race, color, national origin, citizenship, immigration status, or the status of their parents/guardians.


The public school your child may attend depends on where you live. The local public school systems includes Charlottesville City, Albemarle County, Augusta County, Greene County, and Nelson County.
