Our international students enrich both the educational and cultural experiences of our student body and offer us all a stronger understanding of our global community. The Hampton Roads Academy Upper School is a student body of around 250. We do limit the number of students from any one country to ensure that all international students have a true American residential experience.

  • English support courses including College English and Writing
  • College Counseling and a 100% success rate in US College / University matriculation for International graduates
  • Test-prep: TOEFL, SAT, ACT, and HRA is a test site for all of these tests
