Academics

January Term

January Term allows you to explore courses that are not currently part of our semester curricula, as well as offers ample opportunity for co-curriculars, meeting graduation requirements, and/or undertaking courses for personal growth.
Faculty select topics driven by their or students' passions. January Term also serves as a time in which student-alumnae connections are able to expand via guest experts, shadow opportunities, and internships. You control your time as they explore your interests and passions. January Term culminates in an expo the where each class shares what they learned during the term.

Athletic practices run normally along with special evening programming and normal weekend duty. Wednesday "one-offs" are unique programming designed by faculty and staff.

Each grade also participates in grade-level programming about select topics including personal health, personal finance, citizenry, and life admin.
