Why Attend NGA 2019?

NGA is the ultimate orientation for our incoming freshmen. Over four days students will have a chance to make positive connections with other ninth-grade students and TJ’s faculty and staff. The academy is designed to help students build a foundation for successfully navigating high school, it will prepare students by sharing homework and academic support tips, how to use Infinite Campus to monitor their grades, who and where in the building to ask for anything.

Students will earn 2.5 elective credits for completing the NGA. They will also receive a small TJ backpack/TJ water-bottle as well as receive free RTD coupons for those who need transportation to and from TJ.
