Our Intersession program, a beloved GMS tradition, offers students another path to expand their learning beyond the classroom. Twice a year, we put academic classes on hold for a full week and encourage girls to try activities that are either entirely new to them or that they want to explore deeply. The girls create, experience, make, and engage. Regardless of the topic, Intersession is a lasting memory for all of our graduates.
Past Intersession offerings have included community service, fiction writing, LED jewelry making, rowing, gardening, cooking with chocolate, songwriting, surfing, documentary photography, food blogging, and debate. Courses are taught by staff and faculty, parents, community volunteers, and even by our expert alums. Intersession class size is smaller than the average GMS class, and the offerings and possibilities are limitless.
