Georgetown Day School's mission calls us to challenge the intellectual, creative and physical abilities of our students, and to encourage inquiry and self-reliance in those students as they grow into "lifelong learners." In February of 2020, GDS students and faculty will participate in a three-day program designed to bring that mission to life through an immersive and experiential learning experience wholly separate from the normal day-to-day academic program of the school.
We're calling this experience Minimester.
On February 26th - 28th, GDS teachers will lead dozens of deep, creative experiences with themes sprouted from the passions and interests of faculty and staff -- passions that may or may not fall within the purview of their academic disciplines. Students will select the Minimester course in which they'd like to participate, and will spend the allotted three days immersing themselves in their chosen topic.
