Freshman Focus Program: Helping 9th graders transition from middle school into high school

A successful transition into high school is very important. Equipping students with the academic and social knowledge and skills they need increases the likelihood of a great high school experience and a better adapted student. Freshman Focus offers a selection of programs designed to help 9th graders make the transition smoothly and succeed in their new environment. Freshman Focus also offers options to benefit the entire school and build a positive culture where all students belong.

Freshman Focus offers schools & after-school programs:

  • A comprehensive curriculum of daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly lessons and activities and social modules that can be adjusted to accommodate your school’s/program’s schedule.
  • Highly engaging and authentic project-based units to build student ownership and success.
  • Student leadership activities to build a positive school culture and give students opportunities to lead.
  • A detailed training package to prepare faculty advisors and student leaders for their important roles in making Freshman Focus work.
  • A complete on-line resource center with tools and resources to effectively implement and manage your program.
  • A powerful orientation camp model to build excitement for the start of high school and jumpstart school spirit.

The Freshman Focus curriculum is divided into ten modules. Each module has specific objectives designed to cover the many social and academic issues and topics that students need to be successful in high school.
In addition to the Freshman Focus modules, the curriculum includes The Challenge – a project-based learning experience. In The Challenge, students are put in the driver’s seat to make a difference for their school, their community, and their futures!
The Campus Series can also be incorporated into the Freshman Focus program or used as a stand-alone program for schools or student leadership teams that want to take student leadership to the next level to transform the culture of the whole school.
