Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Student adjustment; Articulation (Education); Ninth grade (Education);
The purpose of a freshman retreat would be to help middle school students make the transition to high school a successful one. A successful transition program has many components such as; important information in regards to classes and school requirements, parent meetings, and days for new freshman to get acquainted to their new surroundings. These components along with a weekend retreat away from school grounds would prove to be an effective way to help transitioning students. Through the use of adventure-based activities and techniques students will gain self confidence, develop new friendships and take part in risk taking.
