Midwinter Term 2014

Midwinter Term, or M-Term, is an opportunity for Upper School students and teachers to work intensively on group and individual projects during three weeks, usually in March, between Winter and Spring Terms. Classes and programs in a wide variety of subjects are offered to expose students to in-depth study, new interests, possible college/career paths, volunteer opportunities, and recreational pursuits. Many of these occur in conjunction with travel, both abroad and within the United States. Independent study projects may also be proposed for M-Term. M-Term projects often form the basis for continued study or interaction, expansion into a Senior Project, or the impetus for fundraising or other service efforts.
