Whitfield’s Intersession term is designed to take the kind of experiential education our school has always endorsed to a new level. The students have a rich choice of topics which ensure interdisciplinary thinking and cross-grade level collaboration; characteristics truly rare in most schools but clearly prized aspects of Whitfield’s culture. This year’s intersession term is March 15-17, 2016.

An effective intersession experience depends on gathering a small group of students under the supervision of faculty who bring special expertise to the curriculum.
