The sophisticated work we do at Homestead Junior High prepares students for college course offerings through our partnership with SUNY Sullivan. At this age, we focus on refining students’ ability to express themselves through the fine arts, the written and spoken word, and digital content. Embracing the cognitive development of the adolescent mind, our integrative, collaborative, and project-based curriculum prepares students for the challenges and opportunities of the 21st Century.
