Long known for innovative experiential learning at all grade levels, Heathwood has extended its learning well beyond our campus through our unique hands-on learning program, Winterim. For one week each March, Heathwood Upper School students pursue an interest to broaden their educational experience through travel, an internship or a job shadow opportunity, or a workshop environment.
Winterim experiences are local, national, and international. Each focuses on at least one of five main focus areas: academic and cultural enrichment, leadership, service, wilderness education, and internships. All students are required to experience at least one internship during their four years in Upper School. In recent years, Winterim trips have taken Heathwood students to more than 20 countries on five continents.
