Coxsackie-Athens High School
This year, our students will have access to over 40 college-credit bearing courses, allowing for the completion of many, if not all, of the SUNY General Education requirements prior to high school graduation (at 1/3 the price). Struggling learners have flexible access to Rti "extra help" labs taught by a content-certified teacher. Our Distance Learning Program, now running in three rooms all day, has expanded career pathways electives, giving our students access to over 20 new electives, including sequences in American Sign Language and Mandarin Chinese. Internally, the talented faculty at C-A has created even more new electives.
We open this year as a fully 1-to-1 iPad high school, soon-to-be recognized as an Apple Distinguished School and currently 8th in the nation for the effective use of technology within instructional program for schools our size. A student-run Tech Help Team will now provide support for this platform. Our transition to the Common Core in Mathematics is facilitated by the continuation of extended instructional time for all students in our Regents sequence courses. While only in our second year as an official Project Lead the Way school, our new Robotics program is already winning competitions throughout the region, as are many of our amazing athletic teams.
Orientation for 9th grade students and their parents will occur on Weds. Sept 2nd at 6:00 pm. The program will begin in the HS Auditorium with an overview of the transition to HS, everything you need to know about the day-to-day, and how to plan for a successful high school career. Students and parents may then use their schedules to find their classrooms and try out lockers as they self-tour the building. Refreshments will be served. If you have questions, call the HS Office at 731-1801.
