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.
For two weeks in January, faculty select topics driven by their or students' passions. January Term serves as a time in which student-alumnae connections are able to expand via guest experts. 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 and weekend activities run normally along with special evening programming. Each grade also participates in programming about select topics including personal health, personal finance, citizenry, sustaining healthy relationships, and life administration.
