Similar to many January term programs offered in colleges across the country, C/A's J-Term offers our students a concentrated period of enrichment through project-based learning. It is traditionally scheduled for the two weeks following Winter Break, providing students with a unique, exciting way to re-enter the school year. 

Students select from a wide variety of exciting areas of inquiry and learning, wherein they study specific topics in depth.

The student-centered learning nature of J-Term projects puts significant emphasis on creativity and higher order analytical thinking.

Through self-discovery, students gain perspectives and knowledge.
