Learning About High School - The Freshmen Orientation Workshop

The high school years can be overwhelming and scary for students as they enter this important educational stage.  The Prep4Success curricula allows you set up a series of customizable and interactive sessions to help your students learn how high school “works” and what they should expect once they get there.

 

We want to help your students maximize their educational opportunities and make connections between their high school years and their future. As a result, they can develop a greater sense of motivation and excitement for these important years.

Building Life Skills

The Prep4Success topics can be life changing, and we have included activities and discussion guides that foster curiosity, critical thinking, leadership, and collaboration. Each lesson integrates scriptural principles that reinforce the importance of God’s calling and their future.

 

Perfect for Your Freshman Orientation

This curriculum is ideal for Freshmen Orientation, whether you have a workshop or a series of class meetings with eighth graders.
