Freshman Retreat

Students at University High School come from many different cities, neighborhoods, and schools. In order to give all of our incoming freshmen a shared experience in their first week as Trailblazers, we started a new tradition in 2014 – the Freshman Retreat.

The Freshman retreat

The Freshman Retreat involves a good mix of team-building activities and upperclassman-led discussions. At the end of the two-day retreat, freshmen will have made new friends, gotten to know people from other middle schools, and begun to build a cohesive class of Trailblazers.

The 2024 Freshman Retreat (for the Class of 2028) will be Tuesday, August 13 – Wednesday, August 15 at Jameson Camp in Indianapolis, IN.

Coming soon! Click here to download the 2023 Freshman Retreat information packet and required forms. Completed forms are due to Stacey Summitt-Mann, Assistant Head of School, by Monday, August 12. Submit via email at ssummittmann@universityhighschool.org.
