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.

On March 6th, I went to see the film The Post at O'Neil Cinemas, the newly-built theater in Acton.
I sat down, not knowing what to expect. Leaving the theater, I can happily say that I enjoyed the film, and that it left me thinking. It brought up issues of the time, which can be connected to issues we face today.

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.
