The school is very strong academically especially the high school. I would say that I was challenged both academically and socially. Being someone who is not wealthy, sometimes I felt on the outside. If you can find people who are like you it isn't too bad. The college counseling is awesome though!

I love this school for its small environment and strong academics. Everyone there is so welcoming and teachers are always willing to help if needed. There are a variety of athletic teams and often those new to certain sports are given the opportunity to learn for the first time about them. Students across the upper, middle, and lower school exude school spirit at football games, rallies, etc. As a college prepatory school I feel Hampton Roads Academy is one of the best, I often hear returning alumni say that Hampton Roads truly prepared them for college and that the skills they developed while at Hampton Roads were very beneficial. Also, the administration is extremely helpful when it comes to college counseling and the admissions and guidance counselors are always ready to assist and the programs they provide are very insightful and helpful. Overall the school is amazing in almost every aspect and anyone would be pleased with the experience and education their student would receive.
Hampton Roads Academy is an amazing school! I have been attending HRA for ten years, and I have loved every minute of it. Great foreign language and mathematics departments. I would highly recommend it to others,
