When Assistant Principal Kyle Gravitt joined FCHS in July, he knew he was joining a school experiencing a year like no other. Still, he expected a positive experience based on what he had heard about Fluvanna.

“I have heard so many great things about the Fluco family including the successful students, outstanding educators, supportive parents, and strong community connections. So when this opportunity became available, I applied and was lucky enough to be selected to serve as Assistant Principal. I knew I was ready for the next step in my career. I had achieved my goals in the classroom and I knew Fluvanna would be a great place to grow and learn in this new administrative role,” Gravitt said.

Gravitt was born in South Boston, Virginia, which is about two hours from Fluvanna. He graduated from Halifax County High School in 2004, then attended the University of Virginia. While at UVA he obtained his Bachelor’s Degree in History, as well as a Masters Degree in Secondary Social Studies. He also has an educational leadership endorsement in K-12 Administration and Supervision from Longwood University.

Before working in Fluvanna, Gravitt was in the classroom for over a decade teaching Social Studies. He taught in Halifax County and Manassas Park for two years each, then taught in Buckingham County for the last six years. He also used to coach golf, tennis, and girls basketball.

In his new job at FCHS, Gravitt oversees the Social Studies, World Language, and PE departments. He is most excited about serving as a senior class advisor and bringing back the FLUCO PRIDE program.

There are many challenges that Gravitt must deal with each day in his job. “It’s a steady stream of emails, phone calls, and virtual meetings via Zoom or Google Classroom. I’m trying to learn so many names and their responsibilities, which is difficult through virtual meetings and emails,” Gravitt stated.

“Despite the challenges, I’ve embraced the changes, learned so much in my short time here at the high school, and I’m ready for students to be back in the building,” he said. You can find Gravitt in his office at the start of the 4100 hall, or by contacting him at [email protected].
