Inclusion, Equity & Diversity
Hampton Roads Academy is committed to building and supporting a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Preparing our students for life in college and beyond, requires diversity and inclusion to be woven throughout our curriculum, programs, policies and hiring practices. We must demonstrate through words, actions and programs, our inclusive and compassionate environment while promoting awareness, acceptance, and diversity for the HRA community.
