Our Upcoming Seminars & Activities

One of the changes we’ve implemented for our Social Entrepreneurial students next quarter is the removal of compulsury seminars (excluding math, which is still compulsory). Now everything (again, except math) that the students do at LiHigh School will truly come from them (and a lot of math will be interest based as well, so there’s that).

One of our concerns prior to implementing this change was that the students wouldn’t choose to develop any seminars, and instead spend their days just sitting around, looking at their phones. But man, were we wrong! Here’s a list of all the different things our students have decided to work on over the next nine weeks:

  • Singing Lessons
  • Learning German
  • Culinary Arts
  • Swimming
  • Podcasting
  • Dog Training
  • Ice Skating
  • Pottery
  • Researching their Family Trees
  • Chinese History
  • Business Leadership
  • Chemistry
  • Nonverbal Communication
  • Learning Italian
  • Documentary Filmmaking
  • Learning to Play Bass
  • Current Events & Politics
  • Taking a Biology course at Green Mountain College
  • Building a Wood Shop
  • Drawing
  • Financial Management
  • Product Development
  • Graphic Design
  • Mine Craft
  • Dungeons & Dragons
  • Starting a Band
  • Garden Science
  • Sewing
  • Creative Writing
  • Arguing with the Supreme Court (an essay-writing/civics class)
  • Martial Arts
  • and of course, School Congress

And that’s just for the students participating in the Social Entrepreneurial program. If we include our Therapeutic students, we’re talking about subjects such as:

  • Winter Ice Safety
  • Aviation
  • The Science of Parasites
  • Fitness
  • Horseback Riding
  • Skiing & Snowboarding
  • Quilting
  • Photography
  • English Literature
  • and a whole lot more!

As an advisor, I couldn’t be more excited for the quarter to start next week. We’ll all be ridiculously busy, but we’ll also have an awful lot of fun.
