Sabot at Stony Point's establishment in 2007 marked the beginning of a new chapter in the history of two long-standing Richmond schools.
For 35 years, the Sabot School distinguished itself by providing outstanding education for young children and leadership in the field of early childhood education. Prior to joining forces with The Stony Point School, Sabot had made the decision to extend its ...educational approach to include the elementary grades.
The Stony Point School opened its doors to Lower and Middle School students in 1966, and five years later acquired the 28-acre Larus property at Stony Point in South Richmond. During its 41-year history, the Stony Point School prided itself on its intimate educational environment, offering small class sizes and a close-knit school community.
Sabot at Stony Point offers more than 76 years of collective educational expertise; dedication to providing a nurturing and supportive environment for children; and commitment to innovation and best practice in the pursuit of excellence in education.
