Getting to Know You

Freshman Year

This year allows our young students to take some time truly getting to know who they are. What are their interests, strengths, weaknesses, dislikes? Interests, Skills, and Intelligence profilers give them a strong understanding of what makes them unique and successful with tips on how to build onto their abilities and use them to their benefit. Starting in ninth grade, students begin to build a personal brand that they will “sell” to the colleges in a few short years.

Additionally, Freshmen initiate various important documents that will be used in their college applications, including their course glide paths, activity sheets, honors and achievements, service records, and test score growth trackers. These forms will be updated yearly as our students continue to develop and grow with us.

Starting in late fall, our students begin reviewing the skills necessary to be successful on the PSAT 8/9 that they take in the Spring.
