Secondary (6-12)

High School Program

FIT Academy is excited to welcome its first graduating class in 2022!

We believe that children who are healthier, happier, and primed for learning will succeed academically. That is why we begin the journey of teaching and learning by paying attention to the whole child first. Convention tells us to focus on teaching and curriculum but common sense tells us to begin by ensuring that children are primed for learning. At FIT Academy, this means providing a strong foundation of health & fitness.

High School Academic Program & Post-Secondary Options
The goal of our high school program is to provide a broad base of academic opportunities and a strong academic foundation. This foundation will prepare students for post-secondary opportunities, including taking full advantage of dual enrollment such as PSEO beginning as early as 10th grade.  All students at FIT Academy are eligible for the PSEO program, however, individual colleges make final determination as to the eligibility and enrollment of students based on their criteria and deadlines. You may find out more by visiting our secondary coordinator or contacting the college admissions office directly. Please review the document found below.

Secondary Schedule
Our middle school & high school schedule for 2022-23 will once again feature 7 class periods per day including the four core courses, a health & physical education course, a study hall, and a number of elective options. Electives in 2021-22 included art, psychology, career and college readiness, yearbook, and introduction to engineering. We are actively working on additional electives for 2022-23 including music, Spanish, sociology, creative writing, and sport science. Other options such as AP level courses may also be available.
