High School Experience Class of 2024


NEW Structure in response to the COVID-19 pandemic


  • Each student will attend the program for a single day between August 11th and August 13th (8:30 am-12:30 pm). Days will be assigned by HSE staff and communicated on or before August 5th. 

  • Students will be divided into small teams (based on state and local regulations) that they will get to collaborate with and build relationships with.  All activities will be completed within this small team.
  • Students and staff will be required to complete a health screening upon arrival at the program and will be required to wear a cloth face covering throughout the program. Students are asked to provide their own face covering. 
  • Activities will be designed to encourage distancing and limit the sharing of materials. Hand washing/sanitization breaks will be built into the day.
  • Due to significant budgetary impacts, there will not be an HSE t-shirt this year.
