Success Academy Creed
C-College and Career Readiness by
S-Skills for Success
Everything we do, everything we stand for should be guided by our desire for all Success Academy students to be college and career ready. As a staff we should be united and work collaboratively to achieve this goal.
I am Janice Wyatt-Ross, Program Director for Success Academy. On behalf of our Golden Eagle staff, I am elated to welcome you to our 2022-2023 school year. As you know we have had LOTS of positive changes added to our program. We now serve students in Virtual Middle School and Virtual High School. We will continue to provide in-person instruction to students who are over-age and under credited through our Re-Engagement Program. We are also developing a GED program for students who desire an accelerated alternative route.
I assure you that all these positive changes mean more students and families will receive the personalized service that we are known for and we will continue to put our students' needs and interests at the center of everything that we do.
I would like to officially welcome our new Success Academy Virtual Middle School students, Success Academy Virtual High School students, and Success Academy Re-engagement students to our program. Our returning Re-engagement students WE ARE BACK!!!!
To everyone, know that I am always here to listen and to partner with you to make our program better than ever before. This year is going to be GREAT!!!

Success Academy Student Needs Assessment👨👦

Student Code of Conduct
In the Fayette County Public Schools, we are committed to teaching the whole child and we recognize that academic and social-emotional success go hand in hand. Ensuring a safe and respectful learning environment where everyone feels welcomed and valued begins with setting explicit expectations for how we will treat one another at school.
Just as teachers set clear classroom expectations for student learning, the Fayette County Board of Education has adopted policies to set districtwide expectations. The purpose of the Student Code of Conduct is to communicate all the district policies related to student behavior in a single document. Developed with the input of students, families, teachers, and administrators, the guidelines follow law and policy, communicate the high standards we have for students, explain the process that staff members follow when issues occur, and outline consequences for misbehavior.
For the first time this year, the Student Code of Conduct is moving to an electronic format. This shift was based on the work of students in the Go Green Club at Henry Clay High School, who surveyed students across our district about how they use the document. To ensure everyone has access, the Student Code of Conduct will be available in multiple languages on the desktop of the Chromebooks issued to every student in FCPS. Paper copies are also available by requesting one here or by calling 859-381-4100.
