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.


  • AM students have an academy bus stop assigned to them close or near to their home. They are picked up from their bus stop and transported to Bayside High School where they will take a VBCPS shuttle bus to the Brock Center. At the end of their second block, students leave the Brock Center and are transported by VBCPS to their home school.
  • PM students get picked up from their home school at the end of second block and are transported by VBCPS directly to the Brock Center. From the Brock Center, they are either transported back to their home school or directly to their homes depending on after school needs and proximity to the Brock Center.
  • For both AM and PM students and due to traveling space, when students arrive at the Brock Center the buses drop students at the end of Marlin Bay Drive. From there students walk the natural path from Marlin Bay Drive to the classroom. Students who choose to drive to the Brock Center, students will be required to park along Marlin Bay Drive and use the natural path.
