The New Student Summer Orientation Program is a five-week summer experience designed intentionally and specifically for students starting their first year at EHS in September.
New Student Orientation Program students enroll in five courses offered through EHS’s traditional summer program and two courses for academic credit—Seminar on Learning and Adventure Ropes—that are for orientation program participants only.
Divided into eight periods, the daily schedule combines four core academic classes with four electives. Core classes concentrate on the subjects of reading, writing, and math, with an emphasis placed on the greatest area of need for each individual student. Students who have taken advantage of an Eagle Hill summer prior to beginning in the fall tell us time and again what a confidence-boosting and affirming experience it was for them.
