Freshman Academy

Dear Freshman Students and Parents:

Welcome to Cumberland County High School! 

Freshman year in high school is a time of excitement and expectation. It is a time when young people discover who they are and more importantly, who they can become. The transition from elementary school to high school is a big step in a young person's life. This transition is supported by our freshman academy model. The Freshman Academy at CCHS creates a focused team approach that shapes a common purpose toward developing a sense of community and a strong commitment to student achievement. Ninth graders are placed on teams for the four content areas, English, Math, Science, and History. The goal is to assist incoming ninth graders in adjusting to high school standards, expectations, and routines.The team model is developed around the concept of a Small Learning Community.
