Winterim is a hallmark of Harpeth Hall’s innovative curriculum. For three weeks in January, Upper School students step outside of traditional classrooms and participate in experiential learning. Ninth and tenth grade students enroll in a variety of on-campus courses which allow them to pursue interests and develop skills they might not otherwise discover during the traditional school year. Eleventh and twelfth grade students forge their own paths by engaging in internships, academic travel, international exchanges, or independent study. Since 1973, this alternative curriculum has enabled students to learn within their topic of choice, develop wonder in learning, independence of thought, honor in action, and joy in community.
