Hermitage High is a public Henrico County high school located in Henrico, Virginia. The mascot of Hermitage High School is the Panther. Hermitage High School has athletic facilities with concrete High School Football stadiums and Rubber-turf Field Tracks.
Initially, Hermitage High School began in 1936 as the Glen Allen High School, which was located at the present-day site of the Cultural Arts Center off Mountain Road. The building that is now George H. Moody School was opened in 1951 as Hermitage High School. The current Hermitage High School was opened in 1972 and is located in the Brookland District.
The Humanities Center is one of the Specialty Centers of Henrico County, focusing on the connection between literature, history, philosophy, and the arts. Students in the Humanities Center also get to practice their humanitarian skills by performing volunteer work for every year that they participate in the center. The program provides students with an opportunity to pursue a rigorous interdisciplinary academic experience in the humanities while fulfilling graduation requirements for an advanced diploma with a Specialty Center seal. Because the center is located at Hermitage High School, students can also take advantage of all the sports, clubs, and resources of a large high school.
