Scientific and Technical Arts

Cross-curricular approaches such as the Integrated Biology English and Technology (IBET) will be developed to offer project centered and experiential coursework in conjunction with local professionals and businesses, giving students real world experience.


Creative and Performing Arts

Daily electives will permit students to practice and refine their skills in music, dance, art, theater, and film on our stage under the guidance of master performers.

It is expected that every student will, at a minimum, complete a one week service project each year.  Eleventh and twelfth grade students will be encouraged to design a service project that involves exposure to a foreign culture and language.

Our Location

A historic building, with the city as our campus ...

Our historic building is embedded in a community rich with educational resources, within walking distance of Ghent’s Chrysler Museum, Nauticus, the d’Art Center, and downtown Norfolk.
