Ramona Convent Secondary School Launches New Enrichment Program

Ramona Convent students were excited to return from Winter Break for a new two-week enrichment program called J-Term, which is short for January term. They took a brief pause from traditional coursework to explore topics that they may never otherwise be introduced to.

Some students traveled to the East Coast on a school led college tour, others visited San Francisco for a government simulation conference run exclusively by undergraduates at Harvard College, some worked an internship, or remained on campus to take classes such as Financial Literacy, Hiking, Cooking, Architecture, Poetry, Dance Conditioning, Podcasting, Robotics, Badminton, and more. The Survival Skills course even culminated with an overnight backpacking trip!

Ramona Faculty, and even some Alumnae, shared their enthusiasm and expertise in different areas. Mrs. Halina Szymanski, Associate Principal said “It was wonderful that our faculty had a chance to share their passions and interact with the student body in a non-traditional setting. I can’t wait to see what courses will be added to next year’s catalog.”
