  • Tates Creek High School 8th Grade Parent Information Meeting

    The Tates Creek High School Freshman Academy Counselors and Principal invite you, as the parent of an incoming 9thgrade student, to a parent orientation and scheduling information meeting on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 at 6:30 PM at Tates Creek High School Fuller Theater.

     The Freshmen Academy Counselors and Principal will be meeting to discuss topics such as the transition from middle school to high school, what a block schedule is, 9thgrade course offerings, and an introduction to the Freshman Academy model. We share your desire to remove as much anxiety as possible about this transition and encourage you to join us for this meeting.

     Prior to this meeting, the Tates Creek Freshman Academy counselors will have already been in the middle schools to talk with the 8thgraders themselves, so they do not need to attend this meeting.   Your student should bring home several pieces of literature and a green schedule sheet for you to review and sign. 

     You will find the Tates Creek “Course Directory” located on our website’s homepage if you have any questions about our 9thgrade course offerings:
