A highly anticipated, weeklong experiential learning program that provides seventh through twelfth grade students with the opportunity to explore a wide range of educational options outside of the classroom, Winterim is one of many experiences that set a Dawson education apart from other schools. 

With local, domestic and international experiences, Winterim strengthens the regular classroom curriculum by drawing students and teachers into activities and places that help bridge the gap between theory and real life.  Faculty-designed programs support the mission of the school by requiring students to stretch themselves in mind, body, and character while exploring their education from an active, experiential perspective that goes beyond the conventional walls of the classroom.
