Anna Julia Cooper School is an independent, faith-based school, providing full-tuition scholarships to K-8th grade students of limited economic resources from Richmond’s East End. The mission of Anna Julia Cooper School is to love, educate, and uplift its students and graduates so that they may realize their God-given gifts.
Our vision is to provide students with the tools necessary to help ensure them the opportunity for a full and meaningful life. For many of our students, this will mean continuing on to college after high school graduation. For all of our students, it means developing the self-confidence, strength of character, academic skills and sense of hope needed to open the door to a promising future.
