Freshman Summer Academy

279

In June, Freshman Summer Academy welcomed 75 incoming freshmen to ACHS! The program has a dual focus of assisting students with educational skills (reading, writing, math, science, and social studies) and social-emotional skills. For educational skills; the students built a city using geometric shapes and vocabulary, wrote letters to their future selves, utilized the scientific method through monitoring blood pressure, practiced writing statement, evaluating those claims, and held a debate. For social-emotional skills, the students completed a team-building day at Peacock Camp, created connections with teachers, and discussed skills for how to handle situations they may encounter in the fall. The students were amazing, and we are looking forward to having them this fall.
