Head of School Address


Greetings from Hobgood Academy! Established in 1970, it serves Pre-school-12 students from Edgecombe, Halifax, Martin, Nash, and Pitt counties. Located in Hobgood, North Carolina, creating a small-town atmosphere of friendship and cooperation.

The Hobgood campus provides for many activities, whether educational or extra-curricular. Its three main classroom buildings correspond to the grades which utilize them: elementary, middle, and high school. The middle school building houses the library and both the high school and elementary buildings house computer labs. Additionally, the campus offers several activity-specific buildings, such as the weight training building and the woodshop. The athletic facilities are comprised of the gym and baseball, softball, and football/soccer fields.

From football to golf or from Quiz Bowl to Beta Club, the activities never cease; yet, the primary focus remains the academic preparation of each student for college. Hobgood's faculty dedicates themselves to the continual education of each child. In addition to English, History, Math, and Science, the student body may participate in various other electives - the arts, physical education, technology, teen living, Latin, study skills, and woodshop - throughout their education. During their senior year, students can attend local community colleges which enables students to enter college with up to twelve hours of college credit or participate in an apprenticeship.

The Board of Trustees, Faculty, and Staff work diligently to ensure the students not only a comprehensive and exciting education, but also a safe and friendly environment. If you are interested in learning about how Hobgood's program can benefit your child, please contact us!
