Freshman Academy



The mission of the Joliet Central Freshman Academy is to prepare our students for success in high school and beyond by providing them with a structured, goal-oriented, rigorous curriculum and a firm and fair behavioral code supported by parents, staff members, community and Academy students themselves. We endorse three beliefs to support this mission:

  •     We believe all freshmen should demonstrate appropriate behavior in a learning, working, and social  environment

  •     We believe all freshmen should meet state standards in literacy and numeracy.

  •     We believe all freshmen should develop a plan for their future at Joliet Central and beyond.
