First Year Academy
Welcome to the First Year Academy!
Ninth grade is a time of excitement and expectation. It is a time when young women begin to discover who they are, and more importantly, who they can become.
The transition from middle school to high school is a big step in a young women’s life. The First Year Academy is here to help our young women discover and take the fundamental steps required for a successful transition into high school.
Located on the first floor of our school building, the First Year Academy is overseen by the First Year Academy lead and includes six dedicated teachers and the First Year Academy Home School Coordinator and Culture Leader.
As part of the First Year Academy students are provided with the opportunity to participate in either Freshman Seminar or AVID. Along with twice monthly Character Education classes, these classes provide first year students with an academic and social-emotional base to begin their high school career.
We look forward to working with your first year student at Albany Leadership.
