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.
Sign up for the PSAT!
The PSAT is great practice for the SAT, a major college entrance exam. Taking the PSAT can also make you eligible for the National Merit Scholarship Program. www.nationalmerit.org.
See your counselor Ms. Tante Colquitt for more information and to sign up. Cost to take the test is $17. The deadline to register is Friday, September 20, 2019.
NGA students will test at PCHS at 8 am on October 16, 2019.
Fall / Yearbook Pictures will take place on Thursday, September 19.
Proof of Residency
Parents/Guardians must provide proof of residency when students are in K, 3rd, 6th, and 9th grade or when there is a question concerning residency. We will not begin to collect these until the first week of school.
Acceptable Proofs of Residency are current (within 30 days) utility bills (power, propane, phone, water, cable/satellite, trash pickup), notarized lease, and rental agreement. Utility bills need to show your street address as receiving service and may not be over 30 days old. If you live with someone else, and the bills are in their name, they will need to come with you to fill out an Affidavit of Residence, bring two acceptable Proofs of Residence, and provide I.D.
You may send current proof of residency with your child beginning the first week of school. We will photocopy and give the originals back to your student. Or, feel free to bring them to the front office when school begins.
