Imagine traversing the Sahara Desert on a camel, tracing footsteps of soldiers who fought and died on the Gettysburg battlefield or investing in fly-by-night stocks as part of a day-trading contest.
Those were just a few of the diverse experiences of past X-Terms, an experiential learning opportunity held in conjunction with St. Catherine’s.
The goal is for Upper School students to pursue and develop intellectual passions, some academic, some not, and to share them with each other while opening up the classroom beyond the traditional four walls.
X-Term provides opportunities for students to collaborate, set common goals and bond. It furthers our mission of instilling the critical skills students need to succeed in the 21st century, including empathy, problem solving, resourcefulness, intellectual creativity, and collaboration.
