Freshman Academy


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.

Free summer 2019 food program

Summer Food Program
Children ages 1-18 eat FREE May 30 through August 7 at various district schools

The Bartlesville Public Schools Child Nutrition Department will be participating in the Summer Food Service Program for Children again this year. Free meals will be served to children ages 1 to 18 in the cafeterias of various schools within the Bartlesville Public School District as shown in the table.

There are no qualifications or registration requirements for children to take part in the program, which will be in its 29th year within the BPSD. The Summer Food Service Program for Children is sponsored by the district and funded by the United States Department of Agriculture. 

The Summer Food Service Program was initially established to ensure low-income children could continue to receive nutritious meals when school was not in session during the summer months. All meals served through the program meet federal nutrition guidelines. Last year, the program served 18,068 meals within the district during the months of June, July, and early August. Through the program, $59,048.50 in federal funding was brought into the community. 

Last year, the Summer Food Service Program for Children coordinated with various summer programs to provide educational and recreational activities to Bartlesville children with a side benefit of providing part-time work for an estimated 12 to 15 school employees. 

The Summer Food Service Program for Children is an equal opportunity program. In accordance with federal law and United States Department of Agriculture policy, it is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability. 

Those who would like to learn more about the Summer Food Service Program for Children within the BPSD can call 918-333-7966.

    BHS Business Students Win at Business Idea Competition

    posted Apr 22, 2019, 7:10 PM by Tina Steele   [ updated Apr 22, 2019, 7:12 PM ]

    The BHS Business Department took four students to compete in the Cherokee Nation Business Idea Competition at the Northeast Technology Center Campus in Claremore, OK on April 18, 2019.

    The competition is part of the Cherokee Nation Entrepreneurship Day activities designed to stimulate entrepreneurial interest among students and is much like a "Shark Tank" competition, except for high school students. The competition was open to all students within the jurisdiction of the Cherokee Nation.  Students were allowed to compete individually or in teams of two. They presented a business idea, along with a tri-fold board and a business plan. Students were interviewed by judges about their business idea and then given a score based on several factors. Prizes were awarded to the top Business Idea in each category.  

    Our BHS students had some really innovative business ideas and each student who competed placed this year!

    • James Austin won 4th Place with his "3-2-1 Studios" small business marketing company ($100 prize)

    • Hannah Walker won 3rd Place with her "Pawz and Spawz" all in one pet care center idea ($200 prize)

    • Catrice Davis and Gracie Rawlings won 2nd Place with their Drop Shipping Website idea called "Tak's Cell" that markets cell phone accessories ($300 Prize)
