7th and 9th Graders Enjoy Orientation

On August 27th, incoming 7th and 9th graders visited campus early to get acquainted and prepare to start middle and upper school at Pacific Ridge.
Students participated in games and activities, went on a campus scavenger hunt, and received information about school technology systems before heading to their respective overnight retreats. Seventh graders set off to Julian to compete in outdoor games, climb a rock wall, try their hand at archery, and bond around a roaring campfire. Ninth grade students hiked at Torrey Pines State Reserve, then settled in at UCSD, where they had the option to tour the library, learn about life as a student-athlete, visit labs at the Center for the Future of Surgery, tackle the UCSD challenge course, and more.
