Voting has begun to choose the façade colors of the new west area high school. See the options and cast your vote today.

Information about the construction project was shared during an April 30 community meeting. Exterior design options were shown, and voting opened for community members to choose their preferred façade colors. Online voting will remain open until 5 p.m. on May 14.

When it opens in 2027, the new high school is expected to primarily draw students from the Cosby High zone and will also affect the Manchester High and Midlothian High zones. Attendance zones have not been determined.

At its Feb. 22 meeting, the Chesterfield County School Board approved the fiscal year 2025 capital improvement program, which includes construction of the west area high school. The project is funded through a Chesterfield County bond referendum approved by voters in November 2022. The 12th high school in Chesterfield County, the school will accommodate up to 2,400 students and will be located at 17500 Duval Road.
