What are Courses and Electives?
Three weeks. Three courses. Three electives.
Endless opportunities to explore who you want to be.
Courses are introductory explorations into topics in a variety of subjects for students interested in pursuing strengths and interests across different subject areas. Students take three courses over the three-week session (one course each week). They’re an opportunity for students to explore different facets of their identity, strengthen skills and interests they already have, or discover an emerging talent.
Electives are more skills-based and are much more specific in focus. For example, a course may cover Game Design, but an elective exclusively covers Chess or Settlers of Catan. While they seem similar, courses cover the breadth of a topic while electives go into the strategy behind a specific game or activity.
