J-Term

J-Term gives upper school students an opportunity for new educational experiences the first week of the second semester. Through a J-Term experience, students interact and build relationships with fellow students and faculty in a less structured format while participating in a variety of common interest educational opportunities that provide for:

  • Mission/service trips and cultural/educational trips and internship opportunities.
  • Non-traditional approaches to teaching and learning including outdoor activities and real world experiences.
  • Elective choices organized along "specialized interests."

In 2019 there were 27 J-Term offerings
72 students traveled on mission and ministry trips
96 traveled on educational trips
25 participated in vocational shadowing
30 participated in ministry projects in our community

Prefect Leadership System

Upper school students participate in a prefect system for their student government. In this system, seven student leaders are mentored by a faculty member, with whom they meet regularly, and are charged with creating and leading a committee of student volunteers to help guide their specific area of oversight. Prefects are expected to function as servant leaders, humbly seeking to build up others and leading by example. The eight positions are: Head Prefect, Academic Prefect, Admissions Prefect, Athletic Prefect, Cultural Prefect, Fine Arts Prefect, Spiritual Life Prefect and Student Life Prefect.
