Cross Country

In the fall, the weather cools, the colors change and the Virginia Chance School cross-country team takes off!  Comprised of second- through fifth-graders, team members practice several times a week and compete against area elementary schools in races at the local and state levels.

Virginia Chance School’s competitive team – where individuals set goals, support their teammates and benefit from a team experience. An excellent training ground for further competition at the middle and high school levels, this program helps students develop an enjoyment of running and physical fitness.

Roots and Shoots Chance School Chapter

The mission of Roots and Shoots is to foster respect and compassion for all living things, promote understanding of all cultures and beliefs, and inspire each to take action to make the world a better place for the environment. Part of Dr. Jane Goodall’s global environmental and humanitarian youth program, the group, is comprised of 22 third- through fifth-grade students, who want to learn about and impact the world beyond their textbooks.

The group meets after school twice a month and participates in various service projects that benefit both Virginia Chance School and the community as a whole.

Girl Scouting at Chance

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Girl Scouts have the opportunity to explore their interests and develop leadership skills while building their community. We offer Girl Scouting for all age levels: Daisies for kindergarten and first grade; Brownies for second and third grades; and Juniors for fourth and fifth grades. After girls graduate from Chance, their Girl Scout Troops stay intact so they can continue to develop the skills they have worked on throughout their Girl Scout experience. Troops meet once or twice a month and are led by trained volunteers from the Chance community.
