Arlington Community High School is an alternative high school that offers courses required for a high school diploma on a semester basis (classes completed in one semester) to any county resident aged 16 or older. Classes operate both in the day and evening hours, from 8 a.m. – 9:10 p.m. As a countywide high school of enrollment, Arlington Community awards its own diploma and has its own extracurricular activities.

Arlington Community ’s diverse student population is focused on earning a high school diploma, while preparing themselves for college, work, and the future. While completing high school requirements, students have an opportunity to take classes for dual-enrollment college credit, as well as work with NOVA counselors to plan a seamless transition to college. The co- location with the Arlington Career Center affords additional opportunities to complete Career and Technical Education courses, earn industry certifications, and earn additional college dual enrollment credits.

Students interested in enrolling in Arlington Community High School should contact the school directly or see their current school counselor for enrollment information.
