Our Mission


At Amherst County High School, our mission is to focus on more than academics, by creating engaged citizens, promoting community pride, and developing essential workforce skills.


Lancer Families:

Amherst County High School is sponsoring a community service opportunity for our students on Friday, April 7, 2023.  We are calling this event "Day of Giving" in which the school and our students can give back to the Amherst community.  Students will be given the opportunity to volunteer at various community organizations the county elementary and middle schools, and the high school. Students will be chaperoned by ACPS faculty and staff.  Transportation to and from the service locations will be provided by the ACPS transportation department, and we will follow normal arrival and departure times.  Students will be transported to their service sites between 9:00-9:30 am and will return to the high school between 2:00- 2:30 pm.   Students may pack a lunch or a bag lunch can be provided by the cafeteria staff.  Those students volunteering at one of our elementary or middle schools will have the option of eating lunch in the cafeteria of the respective school.

This event is a major undertaking and we have opportunities for the majority of our students to participate.  We are asking for your permission to allow your student to participate in our "Day of Giving."  If you have more than one student, please fill the form out for each student.  

PLEASE complete THIS FORM by March 10, 2023, if you give permission for your student to participate in "Day of Giving".  If you would like a hard copy of the permission form, copies are available in the main office at ACHS.

Thank you!
