Freshman Success

Course Description

Freshmen Success is a course which prepares incoming ninth graders with the skills and habits of a mind necessary to make a successful academic, social, and emotional transition to high school and post-secondary endeavors. Students will develop strategies to increase their study skills, time management, listening, questioning techniques, independent thinking, critical reading, effective written and oral communication, and continuous learning.
