Our mission is to ensure readiness for college, career, and citizenship. Since 1923, our school has set high expectations for all partners in the educational process to help our students achieve their dreams. As an Academies of Louisville school and a Model Professional Learning Community, Fern Creek believes that each classroom and program should be tailored for each student to reach their full intellectual capacity and to be prepared for postsecondary success. Our Academies and business partnerships provide authentic, hands-on experiences and future career opportunities while allowing students to earn college credits and industry certifications.
- In our Freshman Academy, students are required to choose a career pathway and take a minimum of three courses along that path. The completion of three courses delineates a student as Career Preparatory. A fourth class delineates a student as a Pathway Completer.
- Fern Creek’s Ivy Plus Academy is designed to connect high-achieving students with the nation’s top colleges. The program’s goal is to provide these students with the information, guidance, mentoring, and means to gain acceptance to these elite institutions.
