School Notes

  • Why Choose Hampton Roads Academy?  At Hampton Roads Academy you will find an atmosphere of community and learning that is unmatched and unmistakable. While our mission states that we prepare students intellectually, artistically, physically and morally for the rigors of higher education and of life, we do so by living within a culture of honesty, respect, and responsibility. HRA students believe in themselves, find value in others, and carry these sophistications out into the world as they grow. They emerge with the skills and confidence they need to make a difference in a complex and ever-changing world.
  • The hallmark of HRA is its cultivation of a community of compassion and excellence that nurtures the whole student. This community is achieved through a top quality academic program, personal attention to each student, and an environment which is safe both physically and emotionally. Every student is encouraged to explore a variety of experiences, academic and extra-curricular, from the science labs, to the playing fields, to the stage. At HRA, each student is valued for, and encouraged to cultivate their individual strengths.
  • We welcome your interest in Hampton Roads Academy and are committed to helping all qualified students gain admittance to this outstanding community. Please let us know how we may assist your family!
