Collegiate 7th Graders Participate in Connect Richmond Kickoff Activity

Collegiate School 7th Grade students participated in September in Communities, Challenges and Leadership, during which senior mentors led activities and shared life experiences.
CCL serves as the kickoff activity for Connect Richmond, the 7th Grade service learning program that fosters interaction and connection between students and individuals they meet in the community. The CCL activity provides leadership opportunities and requires cooperative group work and reflection that focus on Collegiate's core values — honor, love of learning, excellence, respect and community.

Connect Richmond takes place once a week for six weeks as 7th Grade students visit and work with area nonprofit organizations as part of the English and Advisory curriculum.
