Faculty & Staff
WELCOME! The faculty and staff of Pike County's 9th Grade Academy would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the home of the Pirates. We look forward to building a relationship with both you and your student. Here at the 9th Grade Academy (NGA) we are committed to providing our students the best education we can in a safe learning environment. Our goal is to ensure that the instruction your student receives fosters a learner who is not only a problem solver, but can communicate well, work collaboratively and creatively as a lifelong learner.
Captain of the Month--Mr. Clay Woerner
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!
