Student News

John S. Battle students receive scholarship to National League of
Junior Cotillion


Austin W. and Cameron P. were selected as the recipients of a scholarship to attend the local chapter of National League of Junior Cotillion, which is owned by Mrs. Kacey Buchanan.   The High School Cotillion Club is a licensed program of NLJC designed specifically for high school students. New etiquette and character development topics which are pertinent to the high school years, such as dating courtesies, interviewing for scholarships and jobs, positive self-esteem, and handling peer-pressure are presented and discussed at each dance.  The boys will attend four classes which will culminate with a formal spring ball.








John S. Battle High School is one of 24 schools in Virginia to receive Y-Street Grant

RICHMOND- The Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth (VFHY) has awarded $48,000 in grants to 24 youth organizations across Virginia to start or support chapters of VFHY’s award-wining Y Street teen  volunteer group, which promotes healthy, tobacco-free lifestyles for Virginia’s young people.


Y Street grants are awarded to local student organizations in Virginia for encouraging teens to become a part of Y Street and to support its mission. By the end of December, each mini-grant recipient will host a Y Street training event in their community, training at least 25 teens and one adult coordinator to become a working Y Street chapter. In 2013 Y Street added 527 new teen members, who collectively completed nearly 1,000 projects and volunteered more than 3,000 hours.  We are pleased to announce that John S. Battle High School is one of 24 schools to receive the grant.
