Grade 6 Interterm:
During the Grade 6 Interterm, students take a series of day trips into Boston and the surrounding areas. The students see various historical and state government sights, as well as participate in various local service-learning opportunities.
Grades 7-8 Interterm:
The centerpiece of the Grades 7-8 Interterm is the overnight trip to Washington D.C. The students travel by bus to our nation’s capitol where they see the sights of our federal government. Students also participate in local service-learning opportunities.
Grades 9-10 Interterm:
Students in Grades 9-10 participate in a regional educational study, examining challenges to authority in American History. There is an overnight component to this trip as students travel to Pennsylvania.
Grades 11-12 Interterm:
The flagship interterm experience at SSCA is our Belize trip. Every Interterm, SSCA students, along with faculty and staff, serve along side professionals working in a medical mission facility. The students work hard during this trip – but it ends up being a life-long memory for those who participate.
As in the past, students in Grades 11-12 also have the opportunity to participate in SSCA’s local environmental education offering, “Creation Care,” as an alternative to this overnight trip.
