The Central High Freshman Academy (CFA) was established in 2009. CFA has the distinct honor and privilege of serving all ninth-grade students for the Phenix City School System. CFA is located in a suburban area in Phenix City, Alabama. The 2018-2019 enrollment is approximately 442 students.
The Central Freshman Academy was established to remove obstacles that prohibited student success among high school students in America. According to research, ninth grade is a critical component to establishing and maintaining a good foundation in high school. Our goal is to provide an educational program that will empower all students to make good choices and meet the challenges of the 21st Century.
Each freshman has the opportunity to take 4 core courses, physical education, Career Preparedness, numerous electives, and several student club activities. Our students are afforded the opportunity of traveling to Central High School (CHS) at a specific period in the school day and participate in band, ROTC, and athletics. CHS and CFA are connected by a bridge walk; the travel distance is approximately 30 seconds by walking in a normal pace.
Our students are also exposed to technology in the classrooms via the 1:1 Chromebook initiative for grades 9 - 12. Other technologies include Smart Boards, mobile iPad cart, a Chromebook mobile lab and 4 computer labs.
