New Student Orientation

 

Come to New Student Orientation August 17-20, 2017!

This event introduces new students and their families to life at Rio Lindo Adventist Academy. New students will meet the RA’s and staff members and be able to transition into boarding school life before the returning students arrive. This weekend lets new students move into the dorms, sit down with an academic adviser and register for classes, plan their daily schedule, and get to know their new classmates and teachers.

Meals and lodging will be provided for parents wishing to attend orientation with their student. Please fill out the Orientation Registration whether you plan to stay overnight or not so that we can make the necessary arrangements.
