Orientation 2020

The majority of orientation will take place online throughout the summer, starting in late July.  

The goal of orientation is to help you learn the resources of the school, understand our new program for 2020–2021, receive technology training and build community connections.

For students participating in the Walnut Hill Hybrid Program, we will have additional required in-person orientation events for both day and boarding students after your on-campus registration day. Please check the Welcome(back) page for orientation updates over the coming weeks.
