High School is a huge step in your academic career and we want to help you make the transition as smooth as possible. 

You may be wondering:

  • Where can I ask for help? 
  • Will I get lost? 
  • Is there a lot of homework?
  • What is a democratic school?
  • Are there enough bathrooms? 
  • How do I meet people? 
  • Do I have to have a locker? 
  • Where can I go to hang out?

ALL of these questions will be answered when you join us in August-  and you will still have plenty of summer vacation left before you have to come back for orientation.

We are planning tours, games, challenges, discussions, and more! 

It will be a blast!
