Jump Start 9

In ninth grade, as students officially transition into the upper school, they must cope with the demands of a more rigorous academic environment, which places a strong emphasis on study skills and test preparation. Moreover, recognizing and managing teachers’ expectations are requirements ninth grade students face as the workload steadily increases throughout their upper school career. Balancing their social and academic lives will continue to be a challenge throughout their adolescent years.  Jump Start is designed to help students address these challenges.
