Freshman Connection & Summer 2019 opportunities

Freshman Connection

Freshman Connection is a 2-week program designed for incoming freshman to ensure a smooth transition to high school. We encourage participation for every student who is able to attend.

Freshman Connection will run from July 8-19, M-F, from 9AM - 12PM. It will be held at Loyola University's lakeshore campus in Rogers Park due to the exciting capital improvements/construction scheduled this summer at Senn.

Meeting location and additional details will be announced later in the spring.

The program includes the following:
  • Fun opporunities to get to know your classmates and teachers
  • Team-building activities
  • Transition to High School counseling sessions
  • Project-based learning opportunities to prepare you for Senn's MYP curriculum
  • A service learning project (so you can fulfill one of these graduation requirements right away!)
If you have not already done so, please Register for Freshman Connection HERE.
