In my mind, the ideal learning environment is one that is so immersive that the boundary between the classroom and the world outside is so blurred that students step through it without knowing. It is an environment in which students can’t help but formulate their own connections between what they are studying and what they observe in their world.

 Intersession HeroIntersession 2018, Nueva’s intellectual and experiential feast for upper school students, was held January 3–10, and provided extraordinary learning experiences for students as they returned from winter break.

For six days spanning two weeks, upper school students participated in interactive and enriching curricula taught by real-world experts. Students chose from an extensive catalog that included mathematics, art, psychology, business, law, fitness, technology, medicine, conservation, music, and much more.

This year, students researched the international conflicts that arise as a result of sourcing high-demand commodities.

May we swallow pride and may we do away with fear.

For it’s only what we do not know that we have grown afraid of,
And only what we do not choose to hear.
