For freshmen and new sophomores, fall at Middlesex is a busy period packed with excitement, wonder and acclimation. Even while adjusting to Middlesex, our new students achieve significant accomplishments in the classroom, athletic fields, and art studios.

“Choices” is a five-week program where groups of ten new students meet in faculty living rooms to share stories, laughter, stresses, and some cider and homemade brownies. These intimate gatherings are led by two faculty members and a senior member of Peer Support, and together the group discusses common challenges that teenagers face outside the classroom.
