To help freshmen transition to the high school environment, Yorktown has built a student mentoring program where each freshman will be assigned an upperclassman mentor to help throughout the year. After Freshman Orientation*, the program continues with quarterly curriculum days where counselors, mentors and 9th grade teachers work together to aid students in developing study and test taking skills.
Yorktown also expands this program to include all transfer and HILT students as they join the student body during the school year. Yorktown hopes to welcome and help each one of our students succeed in their high school career.
