Welcome to Ninth Grade Academy!

  • 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!

NGA Student Spotlight

  • Pirate of the Week: Will Pitts


    Congratulations to Will Pitts, our Pirate of the Week! Will was selected by Mr. Clayton Moon.

    Mr. Moon wrote, "Will Pitts is a very diligent student who applies himself in the classroom. He was the first student to think creatively and choose to digitally construct a castle for his Medieval Project. His project was well-planned and displayed an understanding of Feudal society. Will also produced a Lego Norwegian Viking ship. Both of his creations allowed him to communicate effectively with class members on how certain factors eventually led to the demise of the wooden Viking ships and stone castles."

    Mr. Alex Smith, Pastor of Life Springs Church, presented Will with a Smoots gift card!

    Will, thank you for helping to make NGA such a special place!
