School Catchment & Home Buying

When choosing a neighborhood in Richmond for your family, you may want to know about Richmond public school catchment areas.

Richmond school district divides the city into different school catchment areas by geographical boundaries. Students attend a school that is designated in the school catchment area. Although the schools in Richmond offer a well-rounded curriculum from Kindergarten to Grade 12, some schools offer enrichment programs that are mainly accessible to students who live in the school's catchment area. These programs may better suit your child's interests and develop essential skills. So if you are located in the neighborhood that matches the school catchment area, your child will be able to attend the preferred schools.
