Finals are over, but summer isn’t beginning just yet for high school students at The Ellis School. Why? It’s mini-course time! Following AP and final exams at the end of May, the Ellis Upper School transitions from traditional academic courses to an eclectic and exciting mix of “mini-courses” for the final weeks of the school year. These required, experiential classes are a time for students to have fun, explore new interests, and unwind.
