Featuring in-depth coverage of news and trends in secondary and higher education, Virginia Living State of Education includes Top High Schools & Colleges 2017, a list of public and private high schools and four-and-two-year colleges leading the way in innovation across the state. Virginia Living’s Top High Schools & Colleges 2017 recognizes schools for excellence and innovation in six categories: Arts & Humanities, Science, Math & Technology, Research & Mentorships, Capital Improvements, Athletics and Special Needs.

After thorough review of each school’s programs and accomplishments, Virginia Living’s editors selected schools that have instituted programs or recently begun capital improvements aimed at strengthening students’ experiences in and beyond the classroom. Virginia Living’s Top High Schools & Colleges 2017 is a resource for anyone curious about why Virginia’s schools are consistently ranked among the nation’s best.

This is the fourth consecutive year Virginia Living magazine has recognized Jefferson College of Health Sciences. In 2014, the publication named Jefferson College one of the top Health & Medicine colleges in the state, and in 2015, the college was recognized in Capital Improvements for our investment in the Virginia Intercollegiate Anatomy Lab on our campus. Last year, the magazine recognized Jefferson College’s Veteran’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, designed to help veterans transition to higher education after serving in the military.
