ACT Prep
The Academy is pleased to announce its ACT Prep Program for all 11th grade students. Currently the students are completing their first ACT practice test to provide a baseline before their four weekly ACT Prep lessons begin on November 30th and continues into April 2016 . 

During the program, Pride Time will be dedicated to reviewing that week’s lesson and preparing the students for the ACT test that will take place on April 19th. The Academy will pay for the April 19th test and provide free ACT Prep books to each student.(If your student needs the writing portion please remember that you need to register and pay separately for this section, as it is not required at all schools.) If you have any questions please feel free to contact Kelly Richter, M.A., 11th Grade Counselor. 

Why is the ACT important to me? The ACT is a college entrance exam, which means colleges look at your score as a body of evidence to determine whether or not they will accept you into their institution. In general, if your GPA is low, a high ACT score could be the difference between getting in to college or not. ACT scores are used to award scholarships as well. Schools and other agencies that award scholarships will look at your GPA and ACT scores to determine whether or not you will be awarded any money and if so, how much.

The Academy Hires New Communications Coordinator
Grove to be new communications and media relations liaison

Westminster, Co, November 9th, 2015 – Last Monday, The Academy hired Molly Grove, M.A. as their new Communications Coordinator. Grove will be working to develop and execute a comprehensive communications initiative that supports the school’s strategic plan while improving their internal and external communications. In addition to working on the school’s strategic plan, Grove will also be working to update The Academy’s online presence and media strategies.

The Academy is a charter school off  W. 120th Avenue that serves to develop college ready, exemplary citizens by promoting excellence in academics, character, and relationship. They have a North Campus that houses Pre-K – 2nd and their Main Campus houses 3rd – 12th grades. Grove will be working in tandem with both campuses to highlight student and staff successes. 

After her first few days on campus, Grove states, ‘I am so excited to be working with The Academy. Walking through the halls here you can really see the Wildcat pride. Each student smiles, says hello, and has something positive to say about the school; and the teachers and staff are updating me with all of the children’s’ success stories. I can’t wait to meet each and every one and share their stories with the community.”

“The Academy creates college ready students and Molly was hired to help the community understand everything that happens here and what services we provide for the children. We are constantly striving to improve upon our goals and with that come growth and development. Molly will work externally to help focus our messages while working to streamline our internal processes.” Tony Fontana, CEO, The Academy.
