Intersession courses occur for one week between the fall and spring semesters and are worth 2.5 credits. Courses are graded on a “pass/fail” basis. While the courses are electives, students are required to enroll in one intersession course per year. Intersession courses are designed by the faculty members and often concern an area of particular talent, interest, or passion on the part of the instructor. The courses vary from year to year and are intended to provide students with the opportunity to apply their classroom learning to a real world context. Intersession courses also allow students to learn and explore a topic or skill not covered by the typical high school curriculum. The following represent a sampling of courses that have been offered or are in development:
Most courses have some costs to be covered by the student. Course listings are typically available by December.
