The Freshman Academy (FA) at Robert E. Lee High School is a bridge between middle school and high school to foster success. It provides a safe space and climate in which to make the big moves ninth-graders are making--academically, emotionally, and socially. The FA helps to ensure that students have the skills, desire, and confidence to succeed. It provides them with an intensive academic experience and increased support and encouragement.
We have three primary goals: to improve student achievement, to create a smaller, safer, and more personal high school learning environment, and to graduate students with the necessary tools and skills for transition into postsecondary education and careers.
We strive to accomplish this through the following:
a smaller learning community
core courses taught daily
increased student involvement
increased counseling opportunities
consistent academic and behavioral expectations
We encourage and ask for students and parents to become active participants in the transition from middle to high school. We look forward to working with you and your child throughout his or her high school experiences.
