As an Academies of Louisville School and a Model Professional Learning Community, Fern Creek believes each classroom and program should be tailored for each student to reach their full intellectual capacity and be prepared for postsecondary success. Our Academies, with the help of our business partnerships, give students authentic hands-on experiences and future career opportunities while earning college credits and industry certifications. Come join us and see why we say, “The Creek Is Rising!”
School Highlights
• In our Freshman Academy, students are required to choose a career pathway and take a minimum of three courses along that path. The completion of three courses makes a student Career Preparatory. A fourth class delineates a student as a Pathway Completer.

• Fern Creek’s Ivy Plus Academy is designed to connect high-achieving students with the nation’s top colleges. The program’s goal is to provide these students with the information, guidance, mentoring, and means to gain acceptance to these elite institutions.
