Winterim is the centerpiece of Lawrence Academy's commitment to immersive education -- learning in the concrete and physical world of activity as a complement to learning in the vicarious and symbol-filled world of traditional classrooms.

Note: Individual programs are subject to change.

The Winterim program is an opportunity to explore a broader range of subjects and skills than is otherwise possible in a regular classroom. In that spirit, student reporters assist the LA communications staff in covering their classmates' experiences, while gaining some knowledge of their own.

For a more historical perspective, check out the 2018, 2017, 2016, and 2015 Winterim Blogs (posted together below). You may also view 2014, 2013, the 2012 Winterim Photo Gallery, and the 2011 Winterim Blog.

Try Tavern in the Square


Tavern in the Square

by Spencer Akers '18

Lawrence Academy's Winterim News Team had a chance to enjoy lunch at "Tavern in the Square" last Tuesday after seeing The Post -- at nearby O'Neil Cinema -- an exhilarating movie capturing a critical moment in history.
