West Sound Academy’s academic semesters end mid-May, so all West Sound Academy students participate in June Term during the last three weeks of the school year. June Term also provides students an opportunity to opt-in to an international or domestic experiential learning trip called a June TREC (Travel, Rethink, Explore, Connect).
During June Term, students study one or two intensive classes for three weeks. June Term provides a forum where students put the academic skills they have been building into practical application. Students enroll in either a morning and afternoon June Term class or an all-day June Term class. Students are graded and earn 0.25 elective credits for a half day June Term class or 0.5 elective credits for an all-day June Term class.
Independent June Term
An upper school student intending to propose an Independent June Term course of study can choose between half day or full day. The student must indicate their intention on the selection form and submit a written proposal. All independent June Term course proposals must include a designated adult supervisor or mentor who is not a parent. Only domestic upper school students are eligible for an independent June Term unless otherwise arranged with the Head of School.
