Congratulations to the following students who were finalists and winners of the United Jewish Community of the Virginia Peninsula’s 17th Annual Holocaust Writing and Visual Arts Competition for Students.
Pursuing independent study has been a tradition for Hampton Roads Academy students. While Senior Projects are a requirement for graduation it is also an opportunity for students to learn about a subject that sparks their curiosity, passion or interest. In this Senior Series we will highlight unique, impactful and fun projects from this year’s senior class.
The HRA community came together to compete in the 11th Annual Sister Cities Global Bee. After an eight year break from competing in the competition, HRA had three high school teams and one faculty team. The high school teams placed first, second and third place in their division.
HRA recently offered Annapolis Defense and Security's "Fight Like a Girl" College Prep Self Defense Program for girls in the Class of 2018. The course focused on safety awareness, safety strategies, and defense techniques.
HRA’s Middle School Builders Club and NJHS chapter went to the Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula on Tuesday, March 6. They toured the facility to learn about the Foodbank’s many programs which provide food to people who might otherwise go hungry. As part of the visit, Builders Club packed 515 bags for the BackPack program which provides nutritious food for food-insecure children in area to take home on weekends.
