This year marks a period of transition for our 13 year-olds. They are completing their experiences with the Middler program and preparing to join the Teen program next year, which requires more responsibility and enables more freedom and choice. We will encourage and support them in creating their own unique experiences within the structure of our program and to develop the ability to express themselves in areas such as leadership, cooperation, community building, music and art.
The Coming of Age Ceremony on Friday evening is the celebration of this transition. Parents, siblings, and friends are an integral part of this Coming of Age celebration and are strongly encouraged to attend.
