Anna Julia Cooper Episcopal School is an independent, faith-based middle school, providing full tuition scholarships to students of limited economic resources primarily from Richmond's East End. Through a program focused on the whole child, we help empower students and graduates to change the trajectory of their lives, setting their sights on success in high school, college, and serving their communities. We value all staff, parents and volunteers as integral to our success as a School and a ‘community of affection.'
