WHAT IS WINTERIM?
Dawson's Winterim is an experiential learning program that provides K-12 students an opportunity to dive deeply into a special topic, culture, or activity. It is a way to cultivate a current passion or discover a new one and is one of many experiences that set a Dawson education apart from other schools.
* Students in grades K-4 have special campus activities, guests, and field trips around a theme, such as World Cultures.
* Grades 5-6 travel as a grade to an outdoor education center in Colorado for many fun team-building and science-based activities.
* Grades 7-12 explore various educational options outside the classroom. 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 school's mission 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.
