Winterim enables students to discover and develop their individual interests and talents through immersion in a single course of study over a two week period.

All Forman students and faculty participate in Winterim at the beginning of March, before Spring break. The centerpiece of Forman School’s commitment to experiential education, Winterim is an exploration of subjects and ideas not taught in a traditional classroom setting, allowing for examination of important issues and the pursuit of new endeavors.

Because students with different learning styles tend to excel as innovators, entrepreneurs, creators, and leaders, Winterim is designed to give students experience in and opportunity for applying skills that lay a foundation for their talents.
