Curriculum Writing/Virtual Learning Track:1 Franklin Street, Hampton, VA
Take a tour through our Academies of Hampton.
The Academies of Hampton provides students with a clear path for graduation and a smooth transition from high school to a postsecondary college or a career field. Students become part of a learning community, completing courses together with students who share similar interest and desire to learn about a specific career field. Each academy provides a highly personalized small learning community, where students learn Academy-driven English, science, math, social studies, while meeting all graduation requirements. The Academies also offer advanced placement courses, dual enrollment courses, and industry certification exams to help students gain college credits and required credentials prior to high school graduation.
Academy teachers have an advanced understanding or expertise in their Academy-focused courses, offering students special activities and events that provide greater awareness of the careers and job opportunities available after graduation. Potential employers share their knowledge and experience through classroom presentations, worksite visits, job shadowing, and internships, while advisors and business mentors introduce students to careers, opportunities, and industry skills through relevant, hands-on learning experiences with real-world applications.
