Academies at Fern Creek

Fern Creek High School’s mission and primary goal is to successfully transition students from middle to high school, explore career and community engagement options, and foster learning for all. Students will learn essential skills through hands-on projects and workshops both in the classroom and in real-world experiences. Engage in team-based activities, develop leadership kills, identify strengths, and discover new interests and future career options. Participate in a small learning community with a dedicated principal, counselor, and core group of teachers and peers.
