The purpose of the Freshman Academy is to help freshmen transition into the high school atmosphere. This program helps raises the spirit of the ninth graders and unites them as a whole. It allows them to be more motivated and more enthusiastic when it comes to learning. It also allows ninth graders to create a bond with their teachers and with their fellow classmates. In the Freshman Academy, the freshmen are split up into two separate teams: teal team, and black team. These two teams participate in friendly competitions with each other allowing them to gain their puma pride.
Some events that are held for the freshman academy are the BBQ party, Freshman Olympics, Freshman award ceremonies, and a exploration of McLaren Park.
