Bishop Feehan Students Get a Jump Start
Incoming freshman “learning the ropes” at the Summer Academic Academy.
Bishop Feehan High School recently held its annual two-week-long Summer Academic Academy for incoming freshmen. More than 100 students chose to participate and enjoyed many opportunities for "learning the ropes" of a new campus, including participating in group activities to enhance social interaction, a review of math and English skills and "survival" skills such as how to take notes, use the library, stay motivated and avoid discipline problems.
Ann Perry, vice president of academic affairs, said "The Summer Academic Academy has been a great success each year. Whether the kids realize it or not, it gives them the confidence to start the year off on the right foot and helps to eliminate the first-day-of-school jitters.
