Information Nights

The school division hosts a citywide event every fall to showcase the high school academies and advanced academic programs. This year’s event, Navigating the Journey, is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 12, from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at the Virginia Beach Convention Center. At the event, students and their families have the opportunity to visit program displays and information tables to speak with representatives from all eight high school programs as well as Green Run Collegiate, the Advanced Technology Center and the Technical and Career Education Center. View the event flyer to see a complete list of exhibits as well as a schedule of information sessions for each high school academy, advanced academic program and specialty center.

In addition, each Academy and Advanced Academic program hosts an event for prospective students and their parents/guardians at the school location.
