This meeting is open to all incoming freshmen.


The Freshman Academy is an exciting program that will create a small learning community to support incoming 9th graders as they transition to high school.  A comprehensive teamed approach will enable academy staff to implement targeted intervention strategies, effectively plan inter-disciplinary learning experiences, and communicate progress and concerns to students' families.  The goal of the Academy is to ensure that all students have a connection to school, are supported academically and socially through a systemic approach, and are prepared to have a successful high school experience.
