Freshman Academy

The Freshman Academy program was developed to enrich our students' first year in high school. The program, started in 2002, is for all freshmen.

This program features:

  • Small class communities for both students and teachers
  • Teaching teams comprised of English, Global Studies, Biology faculty
  • Interdisciplinary curriculum complemented by clear and consistent expectations for students' organization and participation.

This structure benefits students in these ways:

  • Teachers meet weekly with a team counselor to address individual student progress and needs
  • Interdisciplinary curriculum allows students to make connections across subject areas
  • Common organizational strategies prepare freshmen for success in a more rigorous and varied high school environment
  • Freshmen develop a sense of community with each other by sharing common classes and teachers.
