The Williamsburg High School for Architecture and Design is a 9-12 college preparatory school committed to developing students as imaginative critical thinkers. Our curricula builds a foundation of visual knowledge, skills and literacy for creative problem solving, as students are exposed to design and architecture in stand-alone courses as well as having these studies infused into their core academic courses. The learning environment at Williamsburg High School for Architecture and Design promotes academic achievement through the integration of a student's career interests and aptitude while making connections to that learning to the world in which we live.
