Your high school career starts with entering the 9th Grade Success Academy. The Ninth Grade Success Academy will continue the tradition of supporting our students' transition to the high school. We are dedicated to helping them grow academically and socially, so they may succeed in their chosen career pathways and have pride in their accomplishments. We want each student to achieve success at a variety of levels. We encourage students to set high goals for themselves and demand excellence in all they do.  Our students will take a variety of classes during the ninth grade year. These course offerings for 9th graders include:  English, Algebra I & II, Geometry, Active Science, American History, College Writing, Physical Education/Health/Freshman Seminar, Strategic Reading and Electives. The Strategic Reading course is designed to provide a print rich environment for students to continue to develop their reading and composition skills.
