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. Additionally, there is a program of social activities designed exclusively for Orientation participants, culminating in a summer-ending white water rafting trip.
The benefit of this program for new students is immeasurable, and 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. Students make friends and get to know the faculty and campus well, allowing for a seamless fall transition.
