Serving Our Military Families

What comes to mind when you think of Virginia Beach? For many people it’s the sand, the schools and the service of our military community. That’s not surprising when you consider that nearly a third of the students attending Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) are military-connected.

With a high number of military-connected students, the school division is constantly developing resources and services to support these children and their families. After all, transition can be a challenging experience, but we hope to make your family’s transition a positive one. That’s because VBCPS appreciates the service and dedication to country that our military families provide.

Who We Serve

Our Military-connected students have parents stationed at several local bases including:

  • Naval Air Station (NAS) Oceana/Dam Neck Annex
  • Camp Pendleton
  • Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek (JEB)-Fort Story
  • Naval Support Activity Norfolk
  • Norfolk Naval Shipyard
  • Naval Station Norfolk
  • United States Coast Guard Base Portsmouth
  • Joint Base Langley-Eustis
  • Naval Weapons Station Yorktown
  • United States Coas Guard Training Center Yorktown

In addition, we have a large number of children from NATO families and Special Forces units.

Our Supports

From STEM initiatives at schools with a high concentration of military-connected students to programs focused on the socio-emotional needs and academic achievement of military-connected children, VBCPS is here to support you. Some of these supports include:

  • School Liaison Officers
  • S2S peer support groups at all high schools and JS2S programs at all middle schools
  • A nationally recognized Brats Club through “Brats Without Borders”
  • The Initiative for Military Families (IMF) at five division high schools to increase AP enrollment
