At HRA, we constantly review, improve, and innovate so we can offer an even stronger, more effective experience to our students every year.
The ancient navigators used stars. For generations, road maps guided the way. Today, we navigate the course of our journeys with GPS – the Global Positioning System – a network of satellites orbiting the Earth.
With a voice we trust leading us to our respective destinations and with a constant awareness of our surroundings, we are able to strategically determine our best routes and alter them confidently in response to change. This is the same approach we use when navigating the course for Hampton Roads Academy.
Peninsula families have witnessed multiple generations grow up attending Hampton Roads Academy, with some of our earliest graduating classes now ready to send their grandchildren. We know, however, that we cannot send tomorrow’s children to yesterday’s Hampton Roads Academy. To maintain our reputation as the area’s highest quality school, we must keep aiming higher. Our future leaders deserve the best legacy we can give them.
