Mini-Mester 2021

Another successful mini-mester is in the books! While some of our Middle School students explored the fascinating and dynamic ecology of the Georgia coastline, most students immersed themselves in experiential learning right here on campus! From yoga to fencing, culinary adventures, sailing, choreography and everything in between, mini-mester is a unique opportunity for our Middle School students to explore something new and fun while interacting with students from other grade levels. Mini-Mester encourages our students to be life-long learners and believe that self-initiated learning can be powerfully persuasive and lasting. 

Lower School Strings Performs Al Fresco 

The dedication and creativity of our faculty never wavered throughout this unusual year. In mid-May, strings teacher Paula Swart and her team created a week-long outdoor concert series for her youngest musicians and their parents to enjoy, which was a welcome respite for both students and parents alike.
