J-Term 2020

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 2020 there were 25 J-Term offerings:

  • 82 students traveled on mission or ministry trips - (Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Panama)
  • 69 students traveled on educational trips - (Disney, Florida National Parks, Italy, New York City, San Francisco)
  • 30 students participated in service projects in our community
  • 14 students participated in vocational shadowing
