About January Term Travel

The January Term travel experience is designed to be fun, as well as educational. Each year the faculty from one or more academic departments sponsors a school trip—either a domestic or an international trip. The itinerary is carefully planned by the faculty sponsors well in advance, and full details are shared with students and families during the summer before the opening of school. Each student must pay her own way for all expenses covered by the trip package. The school-sponsored trip is an option that is open to all students.

Students who participate in the school-sponsored trip should remember that this experience is “school away from school,” so each student will be graded on her journal, her paper, her cooperation and attitude, and her Jan Term Sharing Day display. All grades for off-campus internships and trips are based on a scale from Honors to Satisfactory to Unsatisfactory. A Satisfactory grade is required to complete this graduation requirement.
