Emphasis Week

Each spring semester, students participate in Emphasis Week. During this week, students and teachers put aside regular school activities and take part in faculty sponsored courses, community service activities, week-long field trips, or career-oriented internship programs. Some Emphasis offerings from 2018-2019 (our 2019-2020 Emphasis Week was canceled due to COVID-19) included:
  • Goat Farming
  • NYC Arts Trip
  • Rock Climbing
  • Mountain Biking
