By  | 

LANSING, MI (WILX) -- Back to school time is right around the corner and one local charter school is doing something a little different to help incoming students.

NexTech High School of Lansing is hosting online boot camps to help incoming freshman get ready for high school.

The online boot camp began Monday and will run through Aug. 16. Each day a Facebook live video will be posted at 12:15 p.m. providing tips on how to be successful in high school to incoming freshman students.

NexTech High School of Lansing Principal Jamie DeWitt will give students advice, direct them to resources and answer questions that students or parents might have.

"Positive preparation is key for high school freshman to make a successful transition," said DeWitt. "It can be scary, intimidating and just a lot for students to deal with. I want to help take away some of that anxiety and ensure students have access to the tools and information that will help them succeed throughout their high school career."

You can watch the Facebook lives on NexTech High School of Lansing's Facebook page.
