School Summary
Centreville High School is located on the southwestern end of Fairfax County and on the edge of the Dulles technology corridor. As a consequence, Centreville High continues to grow in enrollment and now serves 2280 students. The student population is filled with talented, diverse, and respectful student ranging in grade from 9 through 12.

Centreville High School is a center of creativity and innovation. The staff members, like other leaders in our community, hold as a core value the notion of continuous improvement. Therefore, days are filled with thoughtful routines and strong, diverse, leadership. This has made the school's academic programs second to none. Through the past two years the focus has turned to making the school a stronger community of learners. Staff members have adopted the characteristics of a professional learning community. Through creative planning and innovation, time is set aside during the day for our teachers to collaborate by departmental team about the curriculum, provide time to develop and implement common assessments by discrete instructional teams, offer a variety of ways to enhance students learning through enrichment, and provide individualized intervention to students who are struggling learners. There is a school wide emphasis on critical and creative thinking that provides the students many opportunities to effectively communicate and become solid academicians.

The student body is strongly encouraged to participate in the comprehensive extracurricular program. Staff members strongly believe, and research supports, that students connected to the school in ways beyond the curriculum, and have another significant adult in their life (other than their teachers), have a greater chance of meeting with success. The opportunities afforded at CVHS include, but are not limited to, Varsity and junior varsity sports, academic, service, business, art, music, forensics, literary, international, honor, and leadership groups.
