Gold Academy

The Small Learning Communities for 11th/12th grade provide connections and bridges of support for students and families. Our Gold Academy allows our school communities to be served in smaller groups.  The Academy is prepared to assist students and families with academic, behavioral, college and career needs of the 11th and 12th grades.  The goal of the Academy is to prepare students to be critical thinkers, effective communicators, life-long learners and consciousness members of society.   
To effectively reach our Gold students and families, teachers and staff are assigned to one academy.  Collaboration within the Academy better connects our students toward opportunities to personalize educational experiences.   To assist in this process, the Gold Academy is staffed with two counselors, an administrator, including a shared dean and coordinator to provide as much personalization and support for the students.  
The Gold Academy is committed to fostering a school culture that builds community through serving and empowering all our students and families.  We look forward to strengthening our community partnerships and engaging with you to promote the success of our 11th and 12th graders in future college and career endeavors.
