Freshman Academy

Harrison High School’s Freshman Academy is a transitional program to provide ninth graders a foundation for success in all aspects of high school. Research shows that the academy concept eases students’ transition from middle to high school as they adjust to their new surroundings. Teachers work to monitor student progress and provide both academic tutoring and structure through a curriculum that is conducive to the learning styles of freshmen.
