Class of 2027

Welcome, freshmen!

The start of your freshmen year brings the start of great change and progress toward your future! We are preparing to open a new building and look forward to continuing to offer a great education and class options that can help you explore your interests and passions. Make sure that you stay aware of your personalized 4-Year Plan you progress through high school. This helpful tool located in your Google Classroom Class of 2027 is there to assist you as you thoughtfully create your schedule for each year of high school.

Xello is another helpful tool that you will have access to that can assist you as you explore.  Xello gives you the opportunity to learn about your learning style, matches your interests to possible careers, helps you to search for post-secondary opportunities that match your future educational needs and will help you learn what you will need to be successful after you graduate from AHS in 4 short years. The lessons that will guide you through these activities and help you use Xello to it's fullest potential will be taught during specific dates during your T-Time class that you will have the opportunity to attend twice each week. Xello coupled with your 4-Year plan will help make up your Individual Plan of Study. This planning piece is essential in making sure you make the most of your time and that you are taking the classes you need to get you where you want to go next.

*Please note that Honors Freshman English will NOT have a summer read this year

Freshman checklist

  1. Start your 4 Year Plan.
    • You can always find it in your Google Classroom Class of 2027
  2. Get involved!
  3. Keep a list of your involvement and volunteer hours.  
    • Your list can be kept in Xello or on a separate page of your 4-year plan.
      • You'll thank us for this when you make a resume!
        • The Career Information page of the Counselor webpages has a helpful template if you would like to get started now. Keep it in a Google Folder and you will have it ready to update each year of high school. 
  4. Check the Events & Post-Secondary Off-Site Visits page of the school website (listed on the counselor pages).
  5. Take the Pre-ACT 8/9.
    • We offer this test to all of our freshmen each October
  6. Remember that credits count!
    • Each class you take is worth .50 credits. You need a total of 25 to graduate.
    • Refer to your own 4-year plan goals to make sure you stay on track.
  7. Always turn in your work!
    • Taking a 0 on an assignment is just giving away credit.
  8. Periodically check this page for opportunities.
  9. Have Fun!
    • High school goes quicker than you think.
