About Bridgeport Academy

Our Beliefs and Values

Bridgeport Academy is the alternative education program for Hampton City Schools (HCS). Bridgeport Academy serves a diverse group of students in grades three through 12 who are placed with us through the HCS Student Services Department. Our classes are in session, Monday through Friday from 8:20 am - 3:09 pm. Students participate in core curriculum courses and also take classes in Health and Physical Education, Career and Technical Education, and Art.

The staff at Bridgeport Academy works to provide our students opportunities for academic learning and behavioral improvement while maintaining a traditional classroom setting. We equip our students with the skills necessary to either return to their home schools, or to obtain their General Education Development (GED®) Certificate.

In addition to students learning in traditional classroom settings, we offer some of our high school students the opportunity to earn credit through e2020, which is a computer-based program. Teachers serve as e2020 facilitators and assist students in their quest to complete credit requirements.

We encourage your involvement in your child's education. Please feel free to contact any staff member or me if you have questions, require assistance, or would like to make an appointment.

Thank you,

A. Lipford
