All middle school students utilize Schoology, an online learning platform, to monitor their weekly assignments, homework, and important due dates. Teachers communicate with their students each week via Schoology by posting a weekly agenda located on the student’s landing page for each course. The weekly agenda includes the weekly assignments and other important information. Teachers also post important due dates on the Schoology calendar.

Staying Organized

Freedom Crossing Academy teachers color code the weekly folder in PINK to help students stay organized. Core teachers create folders in Schoology named by the week and date (Ex: Week 1: August 10-14). Computer courses are named by Unit and date range Ex: Unit 1. The current weekly folder is located on the top and color-coded PINK. Folders in gray are previous lessons. This color coded system helps students and families quickly identify the weekly assignments for each course.

Uploading Documents

Students are responsible for making sure all Schoology assigned assignments are submitted successfully in Schoology. When uploading documents via Schoology, please name the document appropriately including student name, date, and heading if outside of using OneDrive. Students are responsible for contacting the teacher if an assignment will not submit.

Schoology for Students

Home Access Center

The Home Access Center (HAC) allows students and parents to view their child’s educational information via a secure password protected website, Android app, or iPhone app. Your child’s overall grade(s) are posted in the Home Access Center. This includes your child’s most current grades including missing assignments. The Home Access Center is also where parents can view their child’s interim grades and report card. Please check HAC, not Schoology, for your child’s final grades. Schoology is for individual assignment grades only.

Student HAC Account:

  • Students log in with their Active Directory username and password (S-number).  Students can check their grades and view classes and assignments using their HAC account information.

Parent HAC Account:

  • Parents can view their registered students when they use the parent log in. If you have questions about your HAC account, please call the front office at 547-4230 for assistance.

 Please visit the St. Johns County website to access the Home Access Center and for additional helpful resources.

Cell Phone Policy

Per the St. Johns County School District Student Code of Conduct, students may possess cellular telephones and other wireless communication devices at school, on buses, and at school functions. However, they must be turned off, stored in the student’s backpack, purse, or locker. The device shall not be used during the school day without administrative approval or on school buses to and from the school. Failure to comply may result in the device being confiscated (Student Code of Conduct, page 27)

What is LiveSchool?

At Freedom Crossing Academy, we are committed to creating a learning environment where every student is recognized and rewarded for positive behavior using LiveSchool. Students will receive LiveSchool points for adhering to the FCA Behavior Expectations, known as the “FCA Way”- Focused on Safety, Committed to Responsibility, and Always Respectful and for demonstrating outstanding leadership and character during the school day. Middle School students can purchase Chick Fil A sandwiches, cell phone passes, elevator passes, spirit wear, and much more with their LiveSchool points.

National Junior Honor Society
Freedom Crossing Academy Chapter
Procedure Description

The National Junior Honor Society chapter of Freedom Crossing Academy is a duly chartered and affiliated chapter of this prestigious national organization. Membership is open to those students who meet the required standards in five areas of evaluation: scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. Students are selected for membership by majority vote of a five-member principal-appointed faculty council, which bestows this honor upon qualified students on behalf of the faculty of our school.

Students in grades seventh and eighth are eligible for membership. For the scholarship criterion, a student must have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or better on a 4.0 scale. Each fall, those students who meet this criterion have the opportunity to complete a Candidate Form that provides the faculty council with information regarding the candidate’s leadership and service.

To evaluate a candidate’s character, the faculty council uses three forms of input. First, school disciplinary records are reviewed. Second, members of the faculty are solicited for input regarding their professional reflections on a candidate’s service activities, character, and leadership. This will be in the form of teacher evaluations at the choice of the student applicant. Third, students will complete a written personal statement expressing their scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship qualities.

Any solicited faculty input and all Candidate Forms are carefully reviewed by the faculty council to determine membership. A majority vote of the council is necessary for selection. Candidates are notified regarding selection or nonelection according to a predetermined schedule.

Following notification, a formal induction ceremony is held at the school to recognize all the newly selected members. Once inducted, new members are required to maintain the same level of performance (or better) in all four criteria that led to their selection.
