Freshman Academy

The Freshman Academy is a comprehensive freshman transition program for all first-time (or non-repeating) 9th graders. Each freshman is assigned to a Freshman Academy team consisting of a counselor and four teachers/subjects: World History, English, Science, and Health & Physical Education. Each teaching team serves approximately 115-130 common students.

Your student's team meets daily and we look forward to inviting you to attend a parent/teacher conference to discuss ways to help your student have a successful school year. If you would like to arrange a conference with your student's team, please contact the counselor assigned to their team. We look forward to working with you this year!
