Why Attend 9th Grade Academy?

9th Grade Academy is the ultimate orientation for our incoming freshmen. Over four days students will have a chance to make positive connections with other ninth-grade students, student leaders at George, and GW’s faculty and staff. Designed to help students build a foundation for successfully navigating high school, 9th Grade Academy will prepare students by sharing homework and academic support tips, how to use Infinite Campus to monitor your grades, who and where in the building to ask for anything, and how to sign up for clubs and sports.

Students will earn 2.5 elective credits for completing the NGA, and receive incentives and a small backpack full of school materials as well as receive free RTD coupons for those who need transportation to and from GW.
