HCS is named to the Virginia Living Magazine’s Top High Schools and Universities 2022 list


Hampton City Schools is excited to announce that for the fourth consecutive year, the division has been named to the Virginia Living Top High Schools and Universities 2022 list.


This year, Virginia Living recognized the Academies of Hampton (AoH) Summer Business Institute. The annual AoH Summer Business Institute allows students to design and develop a solution to a specific business challenge through collaboration and research. Each learning experience aligns with the academic and technical curriculum of its related field. In the experience, student teams work directly with an assigned employer to learn more about business processes and apply academy skills to complete industry-specific challenges.
