May Program at Columbus School for Girls provides students with the opportunity to explore exciting topics not traditionally found in a school curriculum. This two-week program gives students a chance to risk learning something that is unusual and to devote time to explore a specific interest in depth. In addition, students often uncover real-world connections to their year-long curriculum through their experiences during this program.
Learning looks different in May Program. Homework may be to create an original three-dimensional structure or to write a personal reflection on a film. Courses during May Program are often based on interdisciplinary or experiential learning, and courses often take students off campus for part or all of the day. This invigorating way to end the school year provides students with a chance to make new connections, discover new places, and realize new skills and talents.
Examples of May Program include service trips to Guatemala, Costa Rica, Barbados, and Israel.
