Students will be placed in 4 core academic classes (Science, English, Math, Social Studies) based on data and recommendations from the middle school.    Every 9th grade student should carry a total of 6.5 to 7 credits.  Refer to the online course catalog for course descriptions. In addition to your assigned core classes you will need to choose:
  • One Wellness and one alternate Wellness course (.5 credit).

  • Additional STEM, Humanities and/or World Language* courses and one alternate course for each option (2 - 2.5 credits)

* (1) credit in a World Language course is required for graduation from NFA. Students have the option to register for their first World Language course in grade 9. Keep in mind, post secondary colleges and universities often require students to take two to three years of the same language at the high school level.
