Wildcat Pride was at its best this past week, as students, parents, teachers and staff participated in the excitement of Homecoming. Creativity and collaboration came together to show the love for Academy all week long.
Monday 10/21 – Grandparents’ and Special Friends’ Day
Our students invited their family and friends to a special program in the Academy gym, followed by “Around the World” themed activities and lunch. This year’s attendees filled the gym with the most grandparents and special friends the school has ever hosted for this event! Thank you to all who joined us!

The entire school bled blue and white for this very special spirit day! Wildcats went wild in the Academy Gym for an exciting Pep Rally.
