2019 J-Term

J-Term (short for January 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:

  • 96 students traveled on educational trips - (Disney, London, Nashville)
  • 72 students traveled on mission or ministry trips - (Dominican Republic, Haiti, Kenya)
  • 30 students participated in service projects in our community
  • 25 students participated in vocational shadowing
