Hundreds of Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) students will participate in the 16th Annual African American Male Summit on Jan. 20 at Frank W. Cox High School. Boys in grades six through 12 will share ideas with each other and with adult community members on topics such as student leadership, community involvement, relationship-building, and physical and mental well-being.

Preschool Program

The Technical and Career Center Preschool program is for children ages 3-5 years old who live in Virginia Beach. The preschool operates under the supervision of two high school teachers at the Center.

Students in 11th and 12th grade who attend the Early Childhood Education class at the Technical and Career Center act as teacher assistants in the preschool. The high school students learn about early childhood education and work in the preschool to implement developmentally appropriate lessons and activities.

Creative Curriculum is used in our preschool. It is play-based and features centers such as dramatic play, science, art, sensory, block building and circle time. We serve a daily snack and go outside for large motor activities on two playgrounds. The Tech Center Preschool is open to the public. Up to twenty children are accepted for each of the two sessions (morning or afternoon).
