J Term Classes, Internships & Trips
J Term is offered in the month of January as a break between 1st semester and 2nd semester, in order to focus on concentrated and creative studies. J Term gives students an opportunity to learn a new skill, study a topic in-depth, check out a career, or take an exciting trip! We believe that the lessons and opportunities students experience through this program will be a tremendous value and blessing to the academic, social, spiritual and vocational direction of each student involved.
During J Term, our students have opportunities to interact with and learn from others outside of the traditional classroom setting. Through service opportunities, guest speakers and teachers, internships, and trips, our students learn and "shine their lights" for Christ.
J Term Classes
Students who enroll in classes will choose a morning and an afternoon class. Hands-on, active learning is an important focus of each class. Some examples of previous practical, special interest and developmental classes include:

J Term Trips
J Term trips offer students an opportunity to travel the world and interact with others. Educational trips are offered to expose students to new languages and explore history and customs. In previous years, students have had the opportunity to travel to Scotland, England, Florida and Mexico City.
J Term Internships
Not just a job shadow. The J Term internship program was created to help students learn about future educational and career options, realize their gifts and abilities, and provide an opportunity to serve our community. During J Term, students may participate in internships in the following fields:
- education (elementary through university)
- medicine (nursing, pharmacy, sports medicine, healthcare)
- law enforcement
- food service
- business (promotions/marketing, banking, insurance, cosmetology)
- church ministry
- graphic design
- science (medicine, marine biology, engineering)
We're excited about the new life experiences our junior high and senior high school students have, which can broaden their perspectives and help equip them to live effectively in God's world.
