All of my Intersession classmates have been excited to participate.”

Anika Intersession Hero

I am a twelfth grader and have been a Nueva student since first grade.

For me, Intersession is six days to step outside of my comfort zone. It’s a really fun way to jump into topics I’m completely new to, and a great opportunity to take seminars rooted in my current interests.

Continuing a beloved Nueva tradition, upper school students are engaged this week in Intersession, the time between semesters for interdisciplinary exploration with real-world experts. Students chose from a catalogue of over 150 seminars, intensives, activity sessions, and field trips offered during the week of January 3–10 in a wide range of topics extending beyond the usual academic disciplines. From "Making a Dinosaur" to "Cooking with Chef Robert," students enjoyed the transition into the new semester.
