Academy students have returned after winter break to take part in G-Term, a special interim where students engage in a non-graded class before the second semester starts. Students selected courses from more than 70 options, including campus sessions, four-day experiences on O‘ahu and extended international and domestic trips.
The immersive courses cover a wide variety of topics, including Hawaiian culture, the arts, community service, social responsibility, cultural awareness, history, technology and life skills. “G-Term allows students to gain meaningful experiences that extend beyond the classroom walls and are not possible during our regular school year schedule,” said Trisha Kawamoto ’98 Caley, director of Academy special terms.
