New Traditions

School debuts three-week immersive learning program

Posted: Saturday, January 26, 2019 12:00 am

George Walton Academy started off 2019 with a new, non-traditional program called “Dawg Days.” The Winter Term was a three-week intensive where students had the option to travel, intern or take courses not offered during the school year on campus. With the intensive two years in the making, the committee in charge of the program hoped to give students a different view of education outside of their regular curriculum

“We want students to learn for the sake of learning. It’s not your traditional educational experience; it’s this way to get students to think that there are things we don’t teach them in a classroom that are also valuable,” said Femke Côté, who served on the committee.
