Freshman are divided into three teams. Each team has dedicated English, Social Studies, Science, and Freshman Seminar teachers. These teachers meet once a week to check in on EVERY student to make sure each is on the path towards success!
Throughout the course of the year, team building, life skills, and future planning will be worked on in all of their Freshman Academy courses. Freshman Seminar, a new course designed to support a student's high school career, is dedicated towards helping build those skills.
Early on, freshman teams will work on devloping their high school identity and understand what they can do to succeed. As we move into the fall and winter, all freshman will be given opportunities and projects geared toward other pathways they can choose starting Sophmore year. The goal is to have students experience a little taste of many options - and then help them make their choices as they move forward.
As a Freshman Academy will offer three promises:
Our Freshman will be able to find THEIR people
Our Freshman will be able to find SUCCESS
Our Freshman will be ENGAGED.
