Interim 2013

Every year, The Athenian School community takes a brief break from the packed schedules of academic classes, sports, and performing arts to explore areas of interest¬†outside of the classroom. In the days leading up to Spring Break, students have the opportunity to travel both nationally and internationally, explore the Bay Area, or learn a new discipline on campus. Faculty typically design trips and activities around their own passions and talents, creating a broad range of opportunities for students to explore their own extracurricular interests.
