A time for interdisciplinary exploration between semesters. Over the course of two weeks in January, students select from dozens of courses taught by real-world experts who are passionate about their subjects. Students attend multiple sessions for each course and participate in culminating field trips.
Nueva’s commitment to the joy of learning underpins Intersession: courses offered are beyond the usual academic disciplines. They allow students time to dive deeply, to create, collaborate, and take initiative in topics that they choose.
