Coxsackie-Athens High School
This year, our students will have access to over 40 college-credit bearing courses, allowing for the completion of many, if not all, of the SUNY General Education requirements prior to high school graduation (at 1/3 the price). Struggling learners have flexible access to Rti "extra help" labs taught by a content-certified teacher. Our Distance Learning Program, now running in three rooms all day, has expanded career pathways electives, giving our students access to over 20 new electives, including sequences in American Sign Language and Mandarin Chinese. Internally, the talented faculty at C-A has created even more new electives.
We open this year as a fully 1-to-1 iPad high school, soon-to-be recognized as an Apple Distinguished School and currently 8th in the nation for the effective use of technology within instructional program for schools our size. A student-run Tech Help Team will now provide support for this platform. Our transition to the Common Core in Mathematics is facilitated by the continuation of extended instructional time for all students in our Regents sequence courses. While only in our second year as an official Project Lead the Way school, our new Robotics program is already winning competitions throughout the region, as are many of our amazing athletic teams.
All students taking college level CGCC courses at CA in the fall will need to complete the CGCC application form and return it to the Counseling Office by September 15th. Once schedules become available online in midsummer, all students should check their schedules and compare their courses to the list of CGCC courses. Students should ONLY complete paperwork for those classes which are listed under the fall CGCC offerings guide. Students will complete a second application in January for any spring CA courses, or full year CA courses which are listed under the spring CGCC offerings guide.
