Welcome To James River Day School
James River Day School is an active member of the learning community in Lynchburg and the surrounding Central Virginia region.
We are fortunate to be located in an area filled with quiet, beautiful communities and a rich, historical heritage. Students have many opportunities to experience our region's culture and history through field trips and special guests. Our school periodically hosts special events with nationally known speakers focusing on education and parenting. James River regularly partners with Forte Chamber Music, Randolph College, the Academy of Fine Arts, Opera on the James, and others to promote the arts in our school and community, because we believe the arts are integral to education.
In this K-8 school, students learn the habits of scholarship, leadership, and citizenship. Our students learn the importance of community service through firsthand experience. Our graduates read and write well. They have played sports and found their creative outlet in music, drama, and art. Our graduates have developed good character. Our graduates possess integrity, curiosity, responsibility, and compassion.
Our faculty and staff are caring, innovative, and deeply committed to the students. At James River Day School, our students thrive because a low student-teacher ratio allows each student to be individually known. In this safe and nurturing environment, our students grow to their fullest potential.
