Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17
The transition to high school is a major event in the life of a young person, and yet very few substantial strategies for support exist in most high schools. Numerous studies show that the transition to high school is marked by a period of emotional stress and discomfort for adolescents, often times resulting in a decrease in academic achievement and an increasingly difficult social adjustment. It is this combination of factors that can be the impetus to poor decision making, as well as high risk and self destructive behavior for freshmen.
Crean Lutheran High School has adopted the Link Crew program and will not just stand by and allow this rite of passage to happen to our freshmen. We have, with some strategic and intentional actions, put in place a structure where freshmen get the necessary support to successfully navigate this significant transition and start their high school experience on a positive note.
"Link Crew was an astounding experience, which further prepared me for high school life. It was an exceptional way for new students to connect with both fellow freshmen as well as returning students. The program helped develop and strengthen Crean Lutheran Campus Life."
