Scottsville is a small town respite with quick access to world-class cities.

Located at the southern end of Virginia’s Albemarle County (population 98,970), Scottsville (population 566) is found 19 miles south of Charlottesville, home of the University of Virginia and Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. The historic town’s pristine views are only 68 miles west of state capital of Richmond and 132 miles south of Washington, DC.

Scottsville is the only incorporated town in Albemarle County, with its own Town Council and Police Department. The town limits also reach into Fluvanna County.

Our students attend fully accredited, highly ranked school systems based on their county of residence. Piedmont Virginia Community College and the University of Virginia offer nationally ranked higher education and cutting-edge workforce development training only a few miles away.

Children from kindergarten age through fifth grade attend Scottsville Elementary School, home of the Tigers. Sixth through eighth graders attend Walton Middle School, while ninth through twelfth graders attend Monticello High School. Local families also choose to homeschool their children or enroll them in the area’s fine private schools.

Scottsville experiences four distinct seasons in Virginia’s temperate Piedmont region.  Apple and cherry trees bloom in the Spring; the River provides respite from hot Summer days; Brilliant Fall foliage peaks in mid-October; and snow graces the ground a few times each Winter.
