Project Week is everyone's favorite time of the school year. Giving students the opportunity to explore ideas and places, experiment and create, dream and realize, is a crucial component of a well rounded education. During Project Week (in April for High School, in June for Middle School) students don’t sit at their desks or rotate between classes. Instead they are off campus – hiking, biking, cooking, meditating, teaching, dancing, sailing, painting, protecting, exploring, discovering and engaging – with the Greater Boston community and beyond.
Project Week builds community: it removes boundaries between students and teachers and across grades and classes; it provides opportunities for physical and mental fitness and for making a difference in the world; it connects students to businesses, government, non-profits and cultural institutions; and it challenges comfort zones and provides a sense of place in and shared responsibility for the global community.
