Each spring, all students grades 6-12 participate in an "E-Term" experience.
Middle school students participate as a grade together. Their experiences include include camping and river exploration, learning about bike safety and enjoying time on bike trails, service projects at a camp, learning to navigate a city, and putting those skills to use around Philadelphia or another city, perhaps even seeing a professional baseball game. (Prior to 2022, the middle school experience was called "Explore Week." See a 2022 Explore Week wrap up here.)
High school students have the opportunity to choose an E-term with people from multiple grades. They select from a variety of options created and led by faculty and staff. Destinations include the local community and far beyond. The experience provides opportunity for intensive experience, reflection, service, personal growth, and community building.
