Avon Old Farms School is excited to once again offer Intersession.
Intersession honors that tradition by offering courses that are often team-taught by faculty and staff on topics outside of the traditional curriculum, but nonetheless relevant and centered on the REAL learning model. Intersession extends the classroom and opens the academic schedule to allow students and faculty to explore a topic of interest in greater detail with an experiential component since field trips and project-based learning feature prominently in the courses. Intersession is a compulsory week-long academic program.
Earlier in the month, students were be able to choose their course for Intersession, which starts our second semester and runs from January 5–12. Please see the 2022 course catalog to see planned courses. There are a healthy number of new offerings to compliment a solid assortment of popular courses from past intersessions.
In addition to the catalog, we encourage you to watch this Parents of Avon recorded meeting from 2020 on the topic of intersesion:
