Learning and Discovery
Beyond the Classroom
With over fifty offerings to choose from, this one-week program of in-depth study takes place immediately after Christmas break, between the first and second semesters. Jterm promotes learning and discovery beyond the traditional courses. Our mission is to increase opportunities of learning and exploration that not only challenge the students in areas of their interest, but encourage deeper faculty-student relationships through enrichment electives, educational travel, service, mission trips, and career experience opportunities.
Will this be your time to… travel to Norway or Brazil as part of our exchange program? Learn of literary giants in London or the glory that was Rome and Greece? Hike the Grand Canyon or explore Hawaii’s volcanoes?
CEO Experiential Learning
Career Experience Opportunities (CEO) provide a time for students to observe and learn about a profession by shadowing a host in the local community. Students can dive into the working world while considering future educational and vocational choices.
Middle School Jterm
Middle school students will have the opportunity to experience a three-day retreat with their respective classes. Students will have a chance to grow spiritually, deepen friendships, try new things, and make incredible memories on these fun Jterm retreats. More >>
Instead of taking a trip or participating in a CEO, high school students may also stay at school during Jterm to explore areas of interest through different courses taught by faculty members or guest teachers. Options range from jewelry making and calligraphy to bowling and driving education.
