In an effort to encourage exploratory, experimental, and extraordinary inquiry, Middle School students are encouraged to participate in X-Block courses. These non-traditional, elective courses encourage students to dive into topics of interest with one another and their faculty mentors in the spirit of collaboration and discovery. Together, students and teachers cultivate curiosity by learning for the sake of learning rather than for a grade. For Upper School students, this time is dedicated to either facilitating an X-Block class for Middle School students, catching up on homework, or pursuing individual passions in the same vein of inquiry.
X-Block course offerings include Meditative Arts and Crafts, Reading for Pleasure, Brain Games!, and more.
