Founded in 2018

Eighth Grade Academy prepares our scholars for high school rigor. This year, our Eighth Grade Academy motto is: Excellence is not an accident.

Brooke Eighth Grade Academy opened in August of 2018, sharing a new, state of the art facility and permanent home with Brooke High School. Eighth Grade Academy’s goal is to provide an academically rigorous public education to its students that will ensure they are prepared to succeed socially and academically at Brooke High School and beyond.

Like each of our kindergarten through seventh grade campuses, our Eighth Grade Academy maintains high academic expectations for all of our students. In order to maximize student achievement, we help our students build their knowledge in a variety of content areas, develop effective work habits with them, and teach them how to problem solve, overcome adversity, be advocates, and become good citizens in their communities.

I am looking forward to meeting our new group of 8th grade scholars! I will be working closely with everyone to help develop their high school ready habits so they can be successful when they transition to high school next year. I cannot wait to meet everyone!
