Freshman Programs

Jones College Prep

2021-2022


Welcome freshmen students and families! We are excited to begin the 2021-2022 school year and to get to know all of our freshmen students! JCP Counselors support freshmen students in their transition to high school in three main domains: academic, social/emotional, and college and career readiness. Our    structured programming is highlighted below:


Program Description

The Freshman Program will consist of two Seminars (large group meetings), 1-1 conference with your counselor, and check ins and support from Eagle Mentors. The lessons, conference, and support from Eagle Mentors will cover the following topics:

  • Belief in development of the whole self
  • Ability to manage transitions and adapt to change 
  • Create positive relationships with adults that support success
  • Create a self-care goal to progress monitor
  • Learn about graduation requirements 

 

Program Expectations & Opportunities

Students are expected to:

  • Attend all in-class seminars
  • Attend their Freshman Conference with their counselor
  • Participate in their bimonthly check in from their Eagle Mentor
  • Check their email & Google Classroom regularly for counseling related communication and events

 

Eagle Mentors

All freshmen students are paired with an upperclassmen mentor, called their Eagle Mentor. Eagle Mentors support freshmen from the beginning of the school year through Spring Break. Mentors are expected to check in with their freshman mentees at least twice a month. Counselors partner with the Eagle Mentors to deliver content to our freshmen students via these check-ins.
