Minimester takes place during the week prior to Spring Break (March 9- 13, 2020) and offers a highly participatory service-learning experience that is intensive, hands-on and authentic. Minimester offerings serve as an extension of our academic program, helping students to establish essential links between what is learned in the classroom to the world in which they have been called to serve. As a result, students experience multi-dimensional change including investigative inquiry skills, positive attitudes toward learning, increased civic engagement, leadership competencies, and spiritual development. Participation in Minimester is mandadory. Upon completion, students will be evaluated by the lead instructor and receive either a PASS or FAIL grade, which will be listed on their permanent transcript. A follow-up reflection assignment will be afforded to document both personal experience and learning. Registration will take place from September 16-27.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Upper School Office at 561-354-1923.
