Aviation Academy soars to list of top schools

Posted: May 7, 2021

The Aviation Academy at Denbigh High School has been named a Top School in Virginia Living magazine's 2021 list of notable programs.

A team of students at the Aviation Academy participated in HUNCH (High school students United with NASA to Create Hardware) to build special lockers used on the International Space Station. Only one other school in the U.S. took part in the program.

Virginia Living published the list of Top Schools in its March/April issue. The list highlights a selection of approximately 200 outstanding Virginia public and private institutions from preschool to graduate level that boast exemplary programs and achievements. The Aviation Academy at Denbigh High School was one of only four Hampton Roads public school systems or programs included in the list.
