The Freshman Buddies Program is designed to pair every incoming freshman with an upper classmen mentor. Juniors and seniors are nominated by faculty members and then undergo an application and interview process to serve as mentors. The purpose of the program is to foster a smooth transition from middle school into high school. The program addresses pertinent topics such as cyber bullying, sexting, study skills and gender empowerment. The mentors and their buddies participate in a variety of teambuilding activities throughout the year.
