Summer Transition Program for Rising 9th Graders


Carver’s summer transition programs are designed to help incoming 6th and 9th grade students transition into Norwalk’s four middle and two high schools. Programming includes individualized instruction, parental involvement, small group learning experiences, diverse enrichment activities, free transportation, and full-day activities benefiting working families. Students learn the basics of navigating their respective new schools. The incoming 9th graders school students learn how to read a transcript, understand graduation requirements, earn credits in courses, and look ahead to potential career options. Students use Naviance/Family Connection to develop an individualized Student Success Plan to identify needs and interests and to set future goals.

This summer, the Norwalk High School students are enjoying their summer transition experience at Brien McMahon High School because Norwalk High School is undergoing renovations.
