Academic Programs

Academics are at the core of Virginia Beach City Public Schools, with a goal of having each student achieve their full academic potential by the time they graduate. Students are challenged to learn to communicate in foreign languages; explore and value the fine and practical arts; and understand the interrelationships of the countries and cultures of the world.

From early childhood through high school, VBCPS provides challenging instruction in language arts, math, science, and social studies; including advanced academic programs, honors classes in high school, and enrichment programs. Fine and performing arts, physical education, career and technical education, and world languages are integral parts of each child's education, from elementary through high school.
