6:00-7:30 - High School Transition Night (parent/guardians/students of current 8th graders)

The transition to High School can be a difficult time for any student.  AGCS is inviting all current 8th students and their parents out to our High School Transition night.  Administration and School Counselors will be discussing the 20-21 Program of Studies and course offerings.  The process of teacher recommendations, placement, credits, GPA, graduation requirements, and course selection will be discussed.  Families and students will get a preview of high school clubs, activities, and athletics and be able to meet with content teachers and counselors.  Finally, counselors will discuss successful habits to form and tips on making the transition to 9th grade a successful one.
