Charterhouse School, in partnership with Shenandoah County and Shenandoah County Public Schools, now has a second location serving students with special needs. Charterhouse School-Edinburg opened in the fall of 2013 and serves students with autism, emotional disabilities, learning disabilities, intellectual disabilities and other health impairments in the former Edinburg Middle School. The school will serve middle and high school students between the ages of 11 and 22. Renovations are being done under Virginia's Public Private Education Act (PPEA) program. When the $4.5 million renovations from a bond program are complete, the school will include a separate entrance and specialized classrooms for students on the autism spectrum.
Nestled at the foot of the Blue Ridge mountains, the school provides learning opportunities through multi-use classrooms, art and music. The new school provides students with career and technical educational training opportunities in horticulture or culinary arts. Nearby Madison Park provides students with recreational opportunities.
Tonya Salley-Goodwin is the principal of the school. Through Shenandoah County Public Schools, Charterhouse has access to a full time teacher, food services, security and maintenance.
