Success in High School and beyond


The CCHS Freshman Academy, FRAC, is specifically designed to create an environment to support freshman as they enter high school and help prepare them for the career based Small Learning Communities and rigorous classroom activities required in the upper grades.  The aim is to help students define and achieve their academic goals by preparing them for graduation, college, and career.  A team of dynamic, dedicated teachers use similar teaching strategies and expectations to ensure students experience a smooth transition from elementary to high school and beyond.
