What is X-Term?

Imagine tracing the footsteps of soldiers who fought and died on the Normandy beaches, getting advice firsthand from experts at FBI headquarters to investigate real crimes, or using 3-D printing to create science fiction worlds.

Those were just a few of the diverse experiences offered by X-Term, an experiential learning opportunity held in conjunction with St. Catherine’s School.

During X-Term, Upper School students pursue and develop passions, some academic, some not, and explore them with each other while stepping out beyond the conventions of school. Students will be immersed in intellectual, athletic or artistic pursuits, community service, travel and more.

Our Mission:
X-Term is an experiential program that provides Upper School students the opportunity to discover, develop and share passions beyond the traditional classroom. X-Term furthers our mission of fostering critical skills needed to succeed in the 21st century, including empathy, problem solving, collaboration, creativity, and global engagement
