This innovative approach to learning is a hallmark of our new schedule, and we’re excited to offer students a chance to discover new passions outside the traditional classroom experience.
This spring, Upper School students will be immersed in a new academic experience: May Terms. These seven-day courses are taught at the end of the second semester and are designed to enrich the student experience beyond the core GFA curriculum.
Designed by our faculty, these non-traditional courses allow students to engage deeply in dynamic topics while exploring personal interests, connecting with different teachers, and collaborating with peers across the division.
