What are The Academies of Hampton?

The Academies of Hampton provides students with a clear path for graduation and a smooth transition from high school to postsecondary college and careers. Students become part of a group of individuals who complete courses together, share similar interests, and desire to learn about a specific career field. Each academy provides a highly personalized, small learning community, where students learn English, science, math, social studies, and meet all graduation requirements within the theme of their academy. The academies also offer advance placement courses, dual enrollment courses, and industry certification exams that may count as college credits depending on the college or apprentice program students attend and the major they pursue.
