Mission Statement

The mission of Tolman High School’s Freshman Academy is to establish a culture of RESPECT and RESPONSIBILITY that    engages all students in a rigorous curriculum which leads to excellent RESULTS. Each student will be well-known, valued and inspired. We will support this effort by working collaboratively with faculty, staff, parents, students and the community. Our focus is to ensure that students make a smooth transition to highschool and that all 9th graders academically graduate to the 10th grade.

We will accomplish this mission by providing the following support systems and interventions which lead to measurable results:

  • An Administrator, Mr. Cordeiro and a Guidance Counselor, Mrs. Sawyer dedicated to Freshman Success.
  • Teaming: The Freshman Academy will have 9th grade teams in a common location within the building to provide a dynamic, structured and supportive environment for learning.
  • Advisory: All students will meet weekly with their adviser to foster academic success and social well-being
