At Columbia Independent School, we aspire to offer educational experiences that challenge students intellectually and provide opportunities to develop problem-solving and collaboration skills. Our Intersession program helps students in grades 9-12 broaden their horizons and think beyond the classroom walls.
Held the week prior to Spring Break, the week-long Intersession courses blend problem-based and experiential learning. Students take a break from their usual classes and select the course that interests them most. The program partners with local organizations and experts throughout the week to enrich the experience.
Past Intersession courses have included CIS CSI (Crime Scene Investigation), Food Around the World, News/Documentary Making 101, Fashion Design, Game Theory/Escape Room, Astronomy 101, Sustainability, Wilderness Survival, Fractally Speaking, and Interior Design.
Intersession courses for 2019 will be announced in early February.
