LA Seal


Winterim 2017Winterim 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.

For a more historical perspective, check out the 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.

Winterim 2018: Day 2

The Galápagos Winterim at the airport

Investigating in Darwin’s Footsteps
By Mark Bedetti ‘19

Prior to their departure, the Winterim News Team got the opportunity to speak with Ms. Ryan, who will be leading the Winterim “In Darwin’s Footsteps: Evolutionary Environmental Responsibility in the  Islands.”

It will be Ms. Ryan’s second year leading this Winterim group, and she told us about her hopes and what she wants to learn, and—most importantly—what her students will get out of the experience

“I am learning more and more every year,” said Ms. Ryan, who is looking forward to diving deep into the program and investing herself as much as possible in the experience. “Last year was the first year that I did it. [I’m] hoping to gain a little knowledge myself, and I just want the students to have an awesome time.”

The group will spend time on the mainland in Quito, Ecuador before moving on to spend six days on three of the Galápagos Islands.

The program is an academic field study, allowing each student to choose what they are going to be studying for the time that they are there.

Students may then choose topics ranging from a specific species to figuring out how the islands were formed. The curriculum — and study of each specific topic — will allow them to form questions based off of what they learn.

There is no doubt that we will be looking forward to seeing the pictures of the experiences the group has in the near future and we wish the best of luck to her and the group!
