Spring Intensives 2023

Beyond the regular curriculum, our two-week-long Spring Intensives provide Upper School students a choice of interdisciplinary courses and travel programs to explore interests beyond the scope of traditional courses. They offer students the opportunity to study one subject in great depth, emphasizing thoughtful comprehension over content coverage.

Recent Spring Intensives include Human Origins, Neuropsychology, Science and the Sociology of Food, Homelessness, The Construction of Gender, William Faulkner, Art and Math (which used mathematical sequences as the underpinnings of art project), and The American Economy (a business and economics intensive that featured applied math, such as linear programming, optimization, marginal utility/cost, and investing/compounding interest).

Additionally, our global academic travel programs are linked to their own dedicated Spring Intensives — providing students with even more time for deep and rigorous preparation.
