JOIN THE 2018-2019 LINK CREW
Link Crew is a freshman transition program that helps incoming 9th graders make the adjustment to the high school environment. Link Leaders, 11th and 12th graders, help make this transition as smooth as possible. Link Crew organizes Freshman Orientation, a freshman-only day before the first day of school that provides the opportunity to meet other 9th grade students. It empowers students to make wise choices and helps prepare freshmen for a successful first day of school. Orientation includes a tour of the campus so new students have an idea where their classes are located. Link Crew also organizes academic and social events such as the Final Exam Cram session in December, A-lunch games and activities, and a back-to-school Freshman Pool Party.
Interested students must submit the application and attend an interview by March 2nd.
