Superintendent's Message

     Welcome to New Kent County Public Schools.  We are happy that you are using this website to learn more about our school system and amazing community.  New Kent County has approximately 20,000 residents with 3,000 students who attend one of our four schools.  New Kent is also home to our Regional Governor’s Stem Academy and Career and Technical Education Center.  

     New Kent County Public Schools has a lot to be proud of, as we are one of thirty seven school divisions out of 132 in the Commonwealth to be fully accredited.  We saw double digit gains in multiple SOL categories last year, while students score in the 80’s and 90’s in all SOL areas. Additionally, our students continue to do amazing things outside the classroom, where they excel in music, fine arts, athletics, and community service.  

     Our focus continues to be on ENGAGED LEARNING, which is why our new instructional framework and digital conversion are based on 21st century learning that is student centered and fosters higher order thinking.   I am blessed to serve as the Superintendent in a place where the motto is “it is all about the people.”  We are a community that values maximizing the potential of every student in a safe environment by people who truly care about the success of children and one another!
