Freshman Academy Enrollment and Transition Information

The transition from middle to high school can be both exciting and overwhelming for students and parents. Many questions can arise regarding the enrollment process, which classes to choose, scheduling, testing, honor classes, working with a Chromebook and the latest in classroom technology, etc.

The Broken Arrow Freshman Academy (BAFA) enrollment counselors visit each middle school site to help prepare current 8th graders for their next step and enrollment for the next school year. The counselors will hand out enrollment cards for students and their parents to fill out. The Freshman Academny Course Planning Guide contains course information. 

The following information outlined below are dates important to your student at their school site.
