Why implement a

FRESHMAN ACADEMY?

Alleviates feelings of anxiety as students enter a new school setting.

Makes students feel known and supported as they achieve their academic and career outcomes

Breaks a large school environment into smaller learning communities

What will a typical day be like at the high school?

Along with 4 core classes and two electives, freshman will also participate in Eagle Ed.

slide8

Why include Eagle Ed as part of the Freshman Academy structure?

Allows students to have another relationship with a significant adult in the building.

It is a daily program, broken into two 30 minute segments. It allows students to see the connection between their academics and the community at large.

One segment is for guided learning and study skills. The other segment is for relationship building, role playing and community exploration.

The Academy concept began the fall of 2006…..
