To better prepare them for their secondary years, Riverhead High School recently held two “Passport to Success” programs for incoming ninth grade English as a New Language students.  

The four-day programs familiarized the 46 enrollees with high school expectations, challenges, and opportunities such as Eastern Suffolk BOCES career and technical programs. They also learned about graduation and grade promotion requirements, as well as social and emotional challenges that they may face in high school.   

The participating students will now meet with counselors throughout the year to discuss their progress and experiences, as well as provide feedback on how the program helped them.
