To form a partnership between Hampton Academy personnel and parents/guardians in the best interest of our students, we ask all parents/guardians to:
Regular attendance is essential for success in school. Students are expected to be present all the hours of all the days school is in session. When a student must be absent, we ask for parent/guardian cooperation as follows:
In addition to an automated message sent to each student’s home the following public stations are used to communicate school closings and delays.
In September, parents/guardians are encouraged to attend our annual Back to School Night. This is an opportunity to meet the staff, follow the student schedule and enjoy light refreshments.
Each year, Hampton Academy presents a number of timely, informative seminars, which we hope will be helpful to our parents/guardians. Past seminar topics have included cyberbullying, conflict resolution and current trends in adolescent substance abuse.
Tuition is paid by the home school district. Students attend Hampton Academy at no cost to families. All programs and activities, including trips and Rowan College at Burlington County courses, are provided at no cost to families.
Affordable transportation options available upon request. Please call 609-267-2757 to request more information.
Each student’s placement at Hampton Academy is confidential. Appropriate release forms must be signed by parents/guardians for Hampton Academy personnel to confer with outside professionals or agencies, except as required by law.
Hampton Academy students are not required to wear school uniforms. We do expect all students to come to school clean, dressed in modest clothing that does not distract from instruction and with appropriate footwear (flat, rubber-soled shoes only in the gym, no steel-toed boots or high heels that present a safety hazard). Repeated dress code violations will be considered a disciplinary issue.
In an effort to continue to take all possible precautions in providing our students with a secure learning environment, all pupils attending Hampton Academy will be required to utilize a clear book bag to carry their educational materials throughout the school day. Should you have any questions or comments regarding this procedure please feel free to contact the Executive Director or Discipline Advisor.
Hampton Academy provides individualized, trauma-focused support and education for children and adolescents ages 6 and older.
