Freshman Academy


BHS

Entrance
The Freshman Academy is on the southeast edge of the campus. Its entrance is at 18th & Shawnee. 

Freshman Academy Staff Members:

Bartlesville High School was reconfigured in August 2015 with a separate but attached Freshman Academy. This school-within-a-school approach helps students transition from middle school to high school. Research shows that the ninth grade year is a critical one in terms of student retention.

The Freshman Academy has its own core classrooms, administrative offices, guidance counselor, library, and computer labs. This allows freshmen to spend most of their day in a smaller academic setting while efficiently sharing with older students large-scale school facilities such as the cafeteria, gymnasia, and fine arts center.

Freshmen also have their own separate lunch period in the new cafeteria, but have access during the school day to the shared fine arts and athletics facilities and an option for some advanced courses in the 10-12 grade classrooms.

The Freshman Academy has its own exterior entrance at the southeast edge of the campus at 18th & Shawnee Avenue, with its own pick-up and drop-off loop along Shawnee and pick-up lane running north along the west edge of Shawnee.

Name the new Bruin mascot!

posted Sep 10, 2018, 12:45 PM by Granger Meador   [ updated Sep 10, 2018, 1:32 PM ]

The Bartlesville Varsity Cheer squad is excited to announce the purchase and arrival of a new Bruin Mascot.  The athletic department has purchased the new mascot costume to replace the previous version, which had been used for several years and was beginning to show significant wear.


The cheerleaders wish to invite the entire community to participate in activities leading up to the first home varsity football game on September 14th when the Bruins take on Del City at 7 p.m. at Custer Stadium on Lyon Field:

  • Older students and the public are invited to submit name ideas for the new mascot*
    • Click here to submit a name for the mascot.
    • Multiple entries are allowed.
    • Entries accepted through Thursday, September 13.
    • The winning name will be announced at the September 14th game.  
    • Winners will have the opportunity to have their photo taken with our new Bruin mascot!
*Name the mascot?
Our mascot is, of course, a Bruin. So the costume is a brown bear. But the varsity cheer would like your help in naming their new mascot, who performs at various athletic events. For example, College High School once had a Willie the Wildcat mascot. So what would YOU propose that the new Bruin mascot be called?

School Pictures for 9-11th graders scheduled for Sept. 20, 2018

posted Sep 5, 2018, 6:14 PM by Tina Steele   [ updated Sep 5, 2018, 6:14 PM ]

It's not Instagram and it's not a selfie! But, it IS your school photo - a snapshot in time. This is the photo that will go into the annual BHS yearbook, and will be looked back upon for many years to come.

Picture day for 9th through 11th grade students will be taken on Thursday, September 20 through students' English classes. Students will receive order forms from their English teacher one week prior to photos being taken.

Take the time to take a photo that you will be proud of. Some tips to make the most out of your experience include getting a good night's sleep the night before picture day. Since most photos are head shots, choose your shirt carefully. Ask yourself, "Would I wear this on a date?" What color do you get the most compliments? Pick out your clothes ahead of time and make sure they are not wrinkled, have holes or stains. Wear something you feel great in! Be conservative on makeup and jewelry. Relax and be comfortable!

If you have any questions, you can contact Miss Martens or Mrs. Amen through the main office.
