Freshman Connection

  • U-46 will host the Freshman Connection for all students who will be first-time freshmen in a U-46 high school for the 2024-25 school year. The Freshman Connection is a two-day voluntary in-person program that will be hosted at each comprehensive high school. Students who register will attend programming at the high school where they will be enrolled for the 2024-25 school year. No fees are required, and transportation will be provided for eligible students. 

    This in-person program will feature community and team-building activities aligned to social-emotional learning standards and help familiarize freshmen with their teachers, their new buildings, and high school schedules. Students will participate in a variety of activities for critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication.


    If your student is still interested in attending, they should contact their middle or high school administration to see if there is room in the program.  You may be able to attend, but you will not have access to U-46 transportation.
