WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?

J-Term provides an in-depth experience through holistic education by adding variety to the normal curriculum and offering new and unique learning opportunities. Students take three intensive four-week classes. In 2018 we added J-Term Abroad. Students experienced opportunities of a lifetime taking courses abroad for 10 days during January. In 2018 they went to the Caribbean for a marine science course, in 2019 it was an environmental science course in Costa Rica, and in 2020 they traveled to Fiji.

Mental Health Day is a whole day dedicated to mental health education. Objectives for the day are to educate our students about various mental health disorders, reduce stigma, provide tools and strategies to manage stress and maintain sound mental health, give our students tangible steps on where they go when they or someone they know needs help, and to give hope. We want our students to know that there is hope.

Small classes allow teachers to connect with students and help build community within the school.

Our Advisory Program is compiled of a mix of grades and genders, designed so one faculty member follows a student from freshman to senior year. To facilitate this, groups of 6 or 7 students across ninth through twelfth grades have been assigned to a faculty advisor. That advisor will keep track of their academic and social progress in school.  The program also provides a person for parents to contact about their student’s school experience.  And, the Advisory Program will serve as a vehicle for information exchange, particularly as it relates to social and emotional learning (SEL).
