We are a hybrid recovery school, blending the best educational curriculum from the greater Richmond area with recovery and life skills from The McShin Foundation.

We are committed to helping youth achieve their educational goals while learning recovery and life skills.


Curriculum is provided by local counties as well as through Edgenuity, a fully accredited online curriculum.

One on One Instruction allows our students dedicated time to work on schoolwork.

Tutoring is available to our students through students from Virginia Commonwealth University and the University of Richmond.


The McShin Foundation is Virginia's leading peer-to-peer recovery community organization.
We've combined the best of what McShin offers, from recovery coaching to lessons in cooking, cleaning, and other life skills, we ensure our students are prepared for their future.

Our recovery curriculum adapts to the times and our staff is committed to keeping a safe and supportive environment.
