Ninth Grade Academy for Denver School of the Arts is going to be held August 12-16, 2013. Classes will be daily from 8:00 am-12:00 pm, and will be taught at DSA. All ninth graders are encouraged to sign up for this week long introduction to life in High School. The week long program is free and open to all incoming ninth graders for the 2013-2014 school year.

Students will learn about graduation requirements, how to read transcripts and how to prepare themselves for applying to college. There will also be classes to get students aquatinted with High School English requirements and formats. Students will have the opportunity to create a piece of art that reflects their ideas and goals for their High School career.

This program is free, and students who need bus passes will be given them on the first day to get back and forth to school. Forms will be handed out to all 8th graders in their science classes the week of April 8th and need to be handed back to their teachers by April 22nd. Last year we had about 80% of the 9th grade class attend this educational and fun introduction to High School. We hope to see your son or daughter this coming Fall!!
