Freshman Academy

Dear Parents and Students,

Now Active Principle

Welcome to Cumberland Gap High School!  Our faculty and staff are eager to meet and learn with our Freshmen Academy students.  At Cumberland Gap, we have state of the art multimedia technology in the majority of our classrooms.  Incorporating technology in the day to day learning activities will give our students the advantage of acquiring the skills and knowledge needed to be successful both in and outside of the classroom.

Placing a strong emphasis on the components of the Freshmen Academy program will continue to help our students bridge the gap between middle and high school experiences.  The team structure of the Freshmen Academy provides small learning communities within the school that allow our teachers to better understand the academic, social, emotional, and developmental needs of each child.  Furthermore, the team structure permits common planning time to coordinate and integrate core curriculum across subjects’ areas.

Cumberland Gap High School offers a wide variety of academic classes, athletic teams, clubs and activities.  We encourage our parents, students and families to take part in the many activities that make high school a great place to learn.  The more you become involved with your school, the greater your feeling for the school community will be, resulting in commitment, pride, and confidence.

Should you have any questions during the school year, please feel free to contact me at the high school.  Let us work together to ensure that the year brings you much success and fulfillment.
