PAC Crew

What is PAC Crew?

PAC Crew is a high school transition program that welcomes freshmen and makes them feel comfortable throughout the first year of their high school experience. Built on the belief that students can help students succeed, PAC is a proven high school transition program that trains mentors from junior and senior classes to be PAC Crew Leaders. As positive role models, PAC Crew Leaders are mentors and student leaders who guide the freshmen to discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to high school and help facilitate freshman success.

More and more studies show that if students have a positive experience their first year in high school, their chance for success increases dramatically. PAC Crew provides the structure for freshmen to receive support and guidance from juniors and seniors who have been through the challenges that high school poses, and understand that the transition to a larger school can sometimes be overwhelming.

PAC Crew is a yearlong transition program with four components that contribute to its success:

High School Orientation - PAC Leaders and freshmen start building the mentor relationship and freshmen receive information about how to be successful in high school

Academic Follow Ups - PAC Leaders support freshman academic success and character development through structured classroom visits

Social Follow Ups - PAC Leaders and freshmen connect outside the classroom at social events to increase student engagement, and promote positive school climate

Leader Initiated Contacts - PAC Leaders connect with their freshmen on a more individual basis
