Pro Vita Winter Session


Just before March break, constituents from a wide spectrum of the Berkshire community gather on campus for a week to challenge and stretch students in ways beyond what is offered in the traditional high school curriculum. With over 80 courses, students explore the larger world around them and practice applying the school motto, Pro Vita Non Pro Schola Discimus (Learning--not just for school but for life). Beyond daily classroom sessions, Pro Vita week features a variety of evening programs. Guest speakers have included Wes Moore, author of The Other Wes Moore, Fred Newman, a contributor to NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion, and environmental activist Marion Stoddart. In addition, students have the option of pursuing site-based courses by travelling off campus. Trips have included environmental stewardship excurisions to the Island School in the Bahamas, service trips to Guatemala and Costa Rica, and flight training (Aviation Science) in Lakeland, Florida
