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.
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.

The weather was a little depressing on the second day of Winterim, but it didn’t affect the high morale of the news team.
After some hard work in the morning, we decided to go out for a lunch at the Pressed Café, suggested by the Communication's Office Hailey Wall '12, and located just a short drive from campus at 108 Spit Brook Rd, Nashua, NH.
We arrived at The Pressed Café around noon. It had simple decorations and a "neat" environment. During the busy …

Groton, MA -- Day 2 of Winterim started off strong, so the LA Winterim News Team sprung into action right away (at 8:00 a.m.) - while many teams were still eating breakfast!
Staring in the Dining Hall, we tried to visit each group and interviewed three faculty members and three students; all as we gathered background video footage and photos from multiple programs.
Along the way, we interviewed Ms. Ruby -- who went to LA -- and asked her about her time at Lawrence …

Caribbean adventurers and Dominican explorers are returning from their travels, while Clay and Kiln creators are finishing their final products and drones are making their final flights.
And through it all, from start to finish, the Winterim News Team was there …
