New Goochland Elementary School

Construction Project

Front of Goochland Elementary School

After serving the learning needs of generations of students, Goochland Elementary will be reborn in 2024 as a new school along Bulldog Way!

The new Goochland Elementary School will be home for 650 K-5 students and preschool students in a separate wing. The new school will be designed for today’s teachers and students and will include a gym and an appropriately sized media center. While design discussions are just beginning, the new school will also include modern security and energy efficiency features and have designated car and bus drop-off and pick-up areas.

We will keep this site up-to-date throughout the design and construction process and will provide our community with opportunities to share their thoughts about elements of the new school.

How will the new school be funded?

The overall project budget is $38,749,774.
