Welcome to Pike County Ninth Grade Academy! We look forward to an exciting year as we embark on the journey of challenging our students to be innovative and creative through every aspect of their education. We believe that 9th grade is a very important year, as it is the time when students have the opportunity to set a firm foundation for a successful high school career. We want to help each student identify their interests and goals, and to support them in obtaining required credits, so that their progression to the 10th grade is smooth and as meaningful as possible. The Ninth Grade Academy faculty and staff are committed to nurturing and developing confident students who are able to be successful at the high school level. We are glad you are here!

Mr. Landers wrote, “Lauren is one of the sweetest, kindest, most hard working students on planet Earth. This is my second year in a row teaching her and she has never complained, never made excuses, or missed an assignment. She’s dedicated to learning, she thinks critically and she is very creative. Her peers love her and they know that they can go to Lauren and ask her questions without judgment and Lauren is more than willing to help them. Lauren deserves this recognition. She is so soft spoken and never asks to be in the spotlight. She just does what she’s supposed to do with a smile on her face.”

At Ninth Grade Academy, we are excited to have a non-traditional employee recognition program, in which students nominate the staff members who make a difference and are exceptional. This month, we would like to recognize Mr. Clay Woerner, who was nominated by student Joshua Rich. Joshua, a student in Mr. Woerner's class, writes, “I nominate Mr. Woerner for Captain of the Month. He always tries to make class easy for some students. His enthusiasm and optimism makes him stand out. He always makes an effort to put a smile on students’ faces with his Joke of the Day. Even though some students prove irritable to Mr. Woerner, he always has the strength to keep high self-esteem and put them back in order. He shows heavy determination to get students to join in Operation: Christmas Shoebox.”
Mr. Woerner, thank you for helping to make NGA such a special place!
