Performing Arts

The Performing Arts Department provides students in all divisions with an educational immersion that is intellectually creative, emotionally compelling, aesthetically enriching and personally relevant.  Our unified vision is committed to promoting the essential life skills of confidence, creativity, communication, citizenship and character. Through self-directed and collaborative instruction and critical reflection, students are encouraged to set goals, take risks and view setbacks as avenues for learning. The entire Hampton Roads Academy community believes the engagement of any student in the performing arts creates awareness that the arts are a constructive vehicle of personal expression and tolerance that builds a thoughtful and conscientious view of the changing world we live in.
