Wednesday marked the end of the school’s first-ever May Term, a seven-day immersion experience that takes the place during what used to be finals week. This year students picked one mini class from a wide variety of subjects, designed to allow them to engage deeply in dynamic topics while collaborating with faculty and peers from different grades.
Through this innovative approach to learning, we’re excited to offer students a chance to discover new passions outside the traditional classroom experience.
To foster meaningful, authentic learning, our school year ends with each student taking one May Term course. These seven-day courses enrich the student experience beyond the core GFA curriculum and offer opportunities to dig into a topic in ways that are impossible during the regular school schedule. Students should expect to connect with classmates and teachers in a different way, explore new interests, and focus on their learning.
