The seminar classes are scheduled during the academic periods. 8th grade meets on Days 2 & 4 and 7th grade meets on Days 1 & 5. 

During the first half of the school year, we have explored the theme Individuality versus Conformity. Students have been exploring the concept of social justice over time. We are using various sources of literature, video, and archived photos. Our most recent discussion centered on the interdependency of individuality and conformity with regard to both positive and negative influences on social norms. 

The students are also offered time during the academic period to explore choice projects and subjects. We have a diverse list of topics. These include computer programming, CAD-SolidWorks, visual arts, performing arts, writing, movie making and editing, arduino, music composition, science fair entries, statistics, chemistry, and service learning.

Thank you to the middle school and high school core teachers who have provided complex resources for the students & have allowed students to shadow their classrooms.  Thank you to the York College professors for delivering multiple lessons on computer programming. Without your expertise and willingness to share your time, we would not be able to explore many of our topics at a depth that is truly challenging. 

Thank you...Mrs. Cornish, Mr. Goerner, Mr. Rexroth, Mr. Nolt, Mr. McAllister, Mrs. Gladfelter, Mr. Ilyes, Mrs. McCauley, Mr. Gould, Mr. Cohen, Professor Jindal, Dr. Meah, and Dr. Wilkerson.
