Freshmen Kick Off Upper School at Retreat

From Sunday, August 21 to Tuesday, August 23, the class of 2026 kicked off the beginning of Upper School with a retreat at the Lake of the Woods/Greenwoods Camps in Decatur, Michigan.

The three days and two nights were a great opportunity for students to get acquainted with one another and participate in a variety of activities that focused on the three core objectives of freshman year: Identity, Integration and Integrity.

It was wonderful to be able to get back to our first overnight retreat since 2019!
