Calendar & News

Our academic schedule for the Winter Term is intentionally structured to maximize class time while maintaining our commitment to the holistic student experience. Students and teachers engage in meaningful synchronous and asynchronous learning opportunities, facilitated by our core technologies: Highlander Nation, Google Suite, and Zoom. The daily schedule includes Community Time, with a particular emphasis on our dedicated Advising and Residential Life programs, as well as regular faculty office hours. Our winter Co-Curricular Program offers a range of arts and fitness options, and encourages students to pursue activities outdoors after the academic day ends. Evening blocks include multiple opportunities for connecting students with the school, and with each other, some required (such as our 2021 Speaker Series) and some optional.
