About Our Academies

In an effort to provide maximum support to students and families and increase student achievement, Washington Union is divided into three distinct Academies: the Freshmen Academy, Sophomore Academy and Panther Academy. Each Academy has it's own focus and creates a school within a school atmosphere.

Freshman Academy

The Freshman Academy provides a safe and supportive learning environment that fosters student academic achievement through self-awareness and personal responsibility, thereby equipping students with the skills to handle the social and emotional infrastructure of high school. Student, parent, and community engagement is encouraged and supported to provide students with overall success and a sense of civic responsibility.
