Head of School Address

It is a pleasure to return as Head of School at Hobgood Academy where I
have the continued opportunity to serve students, families, and
stakeholders. Hobgood Academy, a long-standing educational
institution, serves children from Edgecombe, Halifax, Martin, Nash, and
Pitt counties in grades Preschool through 12th grades. Hobgood
Academy prides itself on graduating students who are not just prepared
for higher education and the work force; students are prepared for their
next step in life.

Hobgood Academy is proud of its outstanding faculty who work
diligently to nurture children's academic strengths and needs, social,
emotional, and physical development, and character qualities leading to
well-rounded, confident, successful students and citizens. Faculty
members spend time getting to know students' interests, guiding them
to courses and activities that help them develop skills necessary for
future endeavors. The staff prides itself on building a community of
learners that is more like family than just schoolmates. Small class sizes
and multi-age classes lend themselves to many opportunities for
positive interactions where students can mentor and learn from one
another. Thanks to our dedicated faculty and parents, students have
opportunities to participate in activities ranging from Beta Club and SGA
to a breadth of athletic sports including football, cheerleading,
volleyball, basketball, softball, and baseball.

It is truly an honor to serve a school whose primary focus is the
development of the whole child. The Board of Trustees and Faculty are
dedicated to providing a well-rounded education in an inviting,
inclusive environment. If you would like to learn more about how
Hobgood Academy can serve your child, please contact us!
