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. The 2018 catalog, listing this year's course offerings, is posted online (PDF at right). You will also find the 2018 Winterim Intro and Sign-up Forms here.
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.

Winterim 2018: Day 1
Ready to GO!
By Mark Bedetti ‘19
GROTON, MA — Students and faculty hit the ground running on Day 1 of Winterim, eagerly jumping into their two-week programs.
For a few groups, Winterim began as early as four AM this morning and even yesterday afternoon, when the "Give Kids the World" group took off for their Florida destination.
"The LA Winterim News Team" caught up with a few of the off-campus Winterims before their departures from campus. Travel groups debriefed before jetting off on their adventures around the globe, their faces mixed with excitement and curiosity as they discovered more about what they will be in for during the next two weeks.
The "Society & Culture in Spain" group made posters for their arrival, while the "Can You Dig It: Archeology in Italy" group reviewed materials and sites they’ll be visiting overseas.
Winterim leader Ms. O’Conner described what their agenda for the near future would look like in Spain when they arrive overseas tomorrow.
After touching down, their group will be working with a primary school in southern Spain, so they had been practicing their language skills and phrases beforehand.
Stay tuned as the Lawrence Academy Winterim News Team continues to put out updates on all the activities, moments, and experiences in store over the course of the next two weeks!
