Wheaton Academy Winterim

Winterim (Winter Interim) is an innovative curricular feature started at Wheaton Academy in 1991. Modeled after the college January term concept, Winterim is designed to increase learning opportunities and has become an enormously valuable and popular component of a Wheaton Academy education. Not only are students given fifty to sixty classes to choose from each year beyond the normal high school curriculum, they also have the unique opportunity to literally travel around the world through a variety of educational and mission trips. In addition, as juniors and seniors, Wheaton Academy students have the rare opportunity to experience a profession first-hand before deciding on a major. Winterim truly means opportunities for Wheaton Academy students. It is also interesting to note that numerous Christian high schools all over America have patterned interim programs after Wheaton Academy's Winterim.

In my experience at the school I grew deeply in my knowledge of the faith. The most experiential venture I had at WA was the “Arrr You Prepared” adventure and leadership/identity training trip during Winterim. I believe that in many instances this trip was used to establish authentic disciples of Jesus Christ and set students apart from the ways of lukewarm believing. I walked away from that WA experience with a better understanding of the person of Christ, who I am in Him, and how to apply discipleship as an integral part of the way I live lif loving people into deeper levels of relationship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit: a Holy, personal and miraculous God.
