13th Annual High School 101 - Summer of 2019

Ninth grade is an important year because a smooth transition to high school starts a student on the path to academic success and positive social experiences. Incoming Blake students can get a running start on being ready for the challenges of high school by enrolling in our unique summer program.  High School 101 eases the transition from middle school and builds connections to Blake that will be in place when the academic year begins. New ninth grade “Bengals” will be ready to learn from the first day of school, bolstered by the academic support and activities in High School 101.  High School 101 is a week filled with useful information, self-discovery, skill-building and new friends—all delivered in a fun atmosphere of hands-on activities. Blake High School invites your son or daughter to join us for this “starting point” toward achievement and high school success.
