Dates & Modules

After registering for orientation, students and families will have access to modules on Ram Ready on the release dates below. Modules should be completed in order but may be completed at the pace of each individual. Please know that Ram Ready modules are available 24 hours a day from now until the end of the summer (although we recommend completing the first three before the next set of modules releases on June 29). They were specifically designed to allow for flexibility within your schedule. Please note: student zoom sessions are only for students and you do not need to log on at the same time as your student to access family and guest content.


In addition to the modules, there will be weekly opportunities for students to meet with their Orientation Leader and their Orientation Team consisting of other new students. There will also be opportunities for students and families to participate in interactive virtual activities weekly.
