Anna Julia Cooper Episcopal School is an independent, faith-based middle school for students of limited resources primarily from Richmond’s East End neighborhood.  All students receive a full-tuition scholarship to attend.


Through a program focused on academic, social, and spiritual development, we help students set their sights on high school, college and a life of responsible citizenship.  Parents and volunteers are integral to our success both as a School and a community of affection.  Helping to ensure that our students are on a path toward a full and decent life is our fundamental reason for being here.
