Upper School

At Virginia Beach Sports Academy. The Upper School program equips our students with the necessary tools and skills needed to excel beyond our school walls. Our students immerse themselves in a warm and engaging environment that inspires authentic inquiry, serious scholarship, and deep reflection. Small class sizes and individualized instruction ultimately enable each student to grow academically but also develop his or her own sense of independence. Our rich curriculum that includes Honors and AP classes provides students the foundation they need to excel in college.
