Your Dasher Mentors will contact you in June to see if you have any questions about the upcoming school year and they will get your group together before Freshman Orientation. Events are also planned during the first few weeks of school for you to get to know each other. Throughout freshman year you will continue to connect with your Dasher Mentors. These young women serve as a great resource for you as you begin your high school journey!

Each freshman enrolls in Freshman Seminar during her fall semester. This interactive classroom experience focuses on teaching you the academic and social/emotional skills that will help you thrive at DSHA. Freshman Seminar acclimates you to DSHA policies and practices, allows you to develop your self-advocacy skills, and begins your development of the DSHA Qualities of a Graduate.
