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 2023-24 school year. The Freshman Connection is a three-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 2023-24 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.
