Profile School held its annual freshman orientation at Camp E-Toh-Anee and Coleman State Park Aug. 28-29. The 26 members of the Class of 2017, along with several Profile staff members, embarked on a journey including a high ropes course and white water rafting on the Androscoggin River, all facilitated by the Enriched Learning Center (ELC).
Students experienced both individual and group challenges over the course of the two-day event. For many students this was their first experience on a high ropes course and/or white water rafting.
Although many of the students grew up and attended elementary and middle school together, making the move into ninth grade is another natural transition in life that can create a lot of mixed emotions for people. The freshman orientation program is a great opportunity for the staff and students to interact with one another outside of the traditional classroom setting. This event marks and sets the tone for the course of their high school career at Profile School.
