Kellam High School, one of the oldest high schools in Virginia Beach, was replaced with a new 2,000-student school envisioned to be a prototype for 21st century learning. It consisted of the construction of a two-story high school of approximately 330,000 SF that accommodates six (6) communities of about 330 students, each with its own section. It has one main library, a courtyard with waterfall, a garden, and a 2,940 SF, 150-seat black box theatre.

In 2015, Kellam was selected as one of the "Top 5 New Educational Facilities in the World" by the Association for Learning Environments (formerly CEFPI).
