Razel Foundation Academy (RFA) is a new tuition-based, non-profit, college-preparatory public elementary school serving students from pre-kindergarten through fifth grade in Hampton Roads, VA. We are in the final stages of our opening journey and look forward to saying hello to our students in the 2023-24 school year.


We believe that all students can learn and achieve academic success, provided they have a supportive educational environment, an exciting and challenging curriculum, and individualized attention. We based the design of our pre-kindergarten to fifth-grade program on research in the social-cognitive theory of learning, early childhood education, positive classroom models, best teaching practices, and inclusive curriculum and instructional methodologies proven to provide high-quality educational opportunities to all types of learners. We build a partnership among parents, students, and teachers that puts learning first. We welcome you to learn more about us as we finish our planning year.

Opening Aug 2023:
