The Academic Academy of Frisco ISD is a program created to assist students in grades 9 through 12 to achieve their educational goals. The Academic Academy uses a variety of approaches and flexible schedules to create an environment of success for students who don’t fit the traditional student mold. Our innovative classrooms are designed to provide the students with online learning supported by certified content teachers.
Full Day Accelerated Learning
Students needing to recover several credits from their freshman and sophomore years may be referred to the Academic Academy Accelerated Learning Program. Students in this program attend the SOC for the full day schedule and are expected to complete 4 classes every 6 weeks. Students will be assigned one lab for each class they are assigned, allowing them two class periods to work on one subject. Most students in this program complete the required courses in order to return to their home campus at semester, some students will stay at the SOC and graduate with us. Either way, this program is a great opportunity to recover lost credits and reach educational goals.
Half Day Accelerated Learning
This program is designed for Juniors and Seniors, as a way to meet the needs of students lacking essential credits for graduation in a flexible way. Students in this program can choose to enroll in the AM Block (8:15-12:15) or PM block (12:25-4:25). This is an accelerated curriculum program and students are required to complete 2 classes every 3 weeks. Students not meeting this expectation will be moved to a full-day program.
PEP (Parent Education Program)
Teen parents may be referred to the Academic Academy (either full day or half day) to work toward the completion of courses for graduation. These students have the choice of attending PEP, a one-period class held for expectant students to learn about prenatal care, safety issues, nutrition, childbirth, and parenting skills. The district PEP teacher meets with the students during this class on a regular basis to help them with doctor visits, day care, and insurance.
Buses will pick up students from their home campus and bus them to the SOC in the morning, then pick them up and drop them off at their home campus in the afternoon. There will also be bus service mid school day for the half day kids coming for the PM Block and leaving the AM Block. Please contact the SOC for specific bus route information.
