Upper School


J-Term is an opportunity for Upper School students to immerse themselves in topics of their choosing and engage with faculty and peers in a deep exploration that expands upon the traditional classroom structure. International travel, domestic missions, local service, internships, on-campus intensives, exploration of the Atlanta area, and off-campus learning intensives are just a few of the available opportunities. Students will also earn course credit on their transcript for participation in J-Term.


The next J-Term takes place January 6-10, 2020, during the first week of the spring semester (long-distance trips will use weekends before and after for travel). Students and parents can check out the full list of 2020 J-Term Course Offerings and watch the registration tutorial. A link to the official registration page will be sent to each class on the following days:

  • Rising seniors: April 23-24, 2019
  • Rising juniors: April 25-26, 2019
  • Rising sophomores: April 29-30, 2019
