Virginia Chance School values outside play and environmental learning through our integrated outdoor classroom focus.

  • Each child plays outside every day, except during heavy rain and thundering.
  • Our Outdoor Classroom offers 26 acres available to children, including woods, fields, pond and Goose Creek.
  • Children experience environmental education through daily natural connections in our learning greenhouse, garden, orchard and chicken coop.
  • We became a certified Model Green and Healthy School, setting the standard in our region for other schools looking to become environmentally integrated.
