The 2019 - 2020 Course Catalog has everything you need to know about our Mod system and how to schedule your classes.
Please remember that each high school student will meet with the scheduling team to build their schedule and guide them through the scheduling process.
2019 Aug Mod
Aug Mod is for high school students and is a part of tuition -- however, some of the classes have materials and/or traveling fees. Please know, too, that we'll require a minimum number of eight (8) students for each class to run and some classes have a maximum. If the class doesn't meet the enrolled minimum number of students, then the class will not be offered.
- Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands
- Shakespeare's Page to Stage
- Servant Leadership
- Material Science
- Canoeing the Rogue Valley and beyond
No day on this Community Service and Wildlife Adventure will be the same as you find yourself straddling the earth's Equator or shopping in South America's largest open air market, then snorkeling with turtles, sea lions, and tropical fish the next. Enjoy magnificent views of the Galapagos Islands standing atop Sierra Negra, a 3687ft volcano. What makes this trip the most rewarding is participating in a community service project where you'll help make a real difference, and maybe even make some new friends

"All hands on all the time” is the name of the game in Material Science, and students get to keep everything they create! Students will become proficient at utilizing a variety of industrial tools with the goal of building practical skills through practical projects including, but not limited to: constructing a functional forge for forging and heat treating steel as well as examining solid-state diffusion welding, developing non-ferrous alloys for investment casting and using polymer models they 3D print themselves to turn their creations into 100% metalwork, and analyzing the qualities of various materials through destructive testing.This is a HOT course so be prepared to sweat!
