Students apply during the spring semester to be a Link Leader the following school year. Our Link Leader Program is designed to help freshmen successfully transition to high school, create a positive school climate, and to help specially selected junior and senior students develop their leadership skills. Leaders attend one day of training, in August, before school starts and help run Freshman Orientation Day. Leaders continue working with ninth graders weekly throughout the school year, engaging students in discussions about a wide range of topics including how to succeed academically, dealing with peer pressure, and how to get involved in school clubs and activities.
