What is Intersession?

Intersession is a time for high school students to develop interdisciplinary exploration with real-world experts. It is an intellectual and experiential feast of topics extending beyond the usual academic disciplines.

Students annually choose from nearly 200 seminars, intensives, and activity sessions offered by industry experts and academic presenters. Intersession takes place in the two weeks following winter break and spans a total of six days.

“Nueva is a school that motivates students to find their true voice and pursue their passions. In my time here, it’s been easy to get involved because of how the school encourages us to dive into all of our passions.”
