Endersession 2016

posted Jun 3, 2016, 10:15 AM by Erik Arnold

It is hard to believe that another school year is nearly over, and yet here we are. The seniors last day of classes is today and students in grades 9-12 will be participating in Endersession next week. Endersession is a very unique opportunity for our students; I’m not aware of another school in the state that does anything quite like it. Teachers spend a significant amount of time creating one week courses (experiences is probably a more appropriate term) for students and then a brochure of all the options is published in December. Students indicate their top 5 choices in January and if they don’t get their first choice they usually end up with their 2nd choice. This year we have several travel experiences for students: Subduction in Seattle: Volcanoes & Emerging Ecologies in the Pacific Northwest; community service in the Dominican Republic; New England by Train, Washington, D.C., New York City, Boston, Exploring Florida’s Gulf Coast, and the Maine Seacoast. Students will also be participating in several outdoor adventure Endersessions that include: Backpacking the White Mountains, Golfing, Whitewater Rafting in Maine, and Disc Golf. Other Endersession courses have students learning about photography, open-fire cooking, film production, reality gaming, and sports mixed with some community service. I hope all students have a safe and memorable time during Endersession and that they appreciate one more example of why IACS is a unique and special experience for all students.
