What is Winterim?

  • Each year, students will take a 3-week intensive course in January before they start their 2nd semester classes. 

  • They will receive .5 credits for this course toward graduation. 

  • There are approximately 14 courses to pick from, including various trips, career preparation with job shadows, and internships. 

  • Students request their courses, which are then assigned based on seniority. 

  • Class sizes are typically 10-15 students, and they all incorporate hands-on and experiential learning, inside and outside the classroom. 

  • Many of the Winterim courses are listed in the following course descriptions as semester courses, but the offerings tend to change year to year in order to offer the students more variety.
