Amelia County High is a public high school located in Amelia, Virginia. It belongs to the Amelia County Public Schools District. The school was formed with the combination of the basically all white Amelia High School and the all African American Russell Grove High school to make the new Amelia County High School, during the time of integration of the schools in Virginia.[] In addition to a new name, there was a new school song, new colors - green and gold - and a new mascot, The Raider.


With a population of roughly 500-600, Amelia County High School plays in Group A of the Virginia High School League. The mascot for this high school is a raider and the school colors are green and gold. The raider is a medieval soldier, wearing armor and carrying a shield and javelin while riding a horse.[2] The school is part of the James River District in Southside Virginia.
