Info for Rising Freshmen

What is the Connect Program?

The Connect Program partners upperclassmen with freshmen Generals Periods to provide support throughout the year. Each freshman Generals Period has two or three upperclassmen who visit 1-2 times a month to discuss school events, academic planning, and answer any questions about Washington-Lee. The mentors also lead team building activities to support freshmen getting to know each other and more about themselves. See the photo gallery below for a look at some first day and team building activities!
