Academics

Welcome to 9th Grade Academics

  • At the Pike County 9th Grade Academy, we strive to provide students with a rigorous curriculum through authentic instruction that will enable opportunities to collaborate, communicate, think critically, be creative and use technology. The way we taught students in the past simply does not prepare them for the higher demands of college and careers today and in the future. Our school and schools throughout the country are working to improve teaching and learning to ensure that all students will graduate high school with the skills they need to be successful.

    Students at 9th Grade Academy have the opportunity to take core classes as well as several electives. Students in this first year of high school are expected to take an English class, Mathematics, Science, and 4 other courses. These may include World History, PE / Health, Psychology / Sociology, Spanish 1, Chorus, Band, Drama, Agriculture.
