Interim is an annual program where students explore learning opportunities outside of the traditional classroom setting. Freshmen, sophomores, and juniors participate in this program.
Interim has been a part of Linworth since 1985. Originally, the program was called Creative Interim and involved on-site artistic experiences. Students now venture outside the Linworth building, sometimes traveling hundreds of miles, to find new knowledge and gain experience.
Working with an Interim advisor, each student designs their own week-long exploration. Students may choose to study anything they wish to do as long as they are learning something not taught in a normal classroom. Staff and parental permission are necessary for all Interims.
During the week, students keep detailed records of their progress. Upon returning to Linworth, each student presents an overview of his or her Interim experience to the community.
