Winter Term is a chance for both teachers and students to explore areas of interest that do not appear as courses in the standard curriculum. Drawing from personal backgrounds and fields of study, teachers prepare courses to enhance the standard Catholic Central curriculum.
Attendance during Winter Term: As Winter Terms compacts a semester of coursework into four weeks, attendance is very important. It is good to consider each day as if it were three days, as each course meets for three hours a day. Adjusting the standard attendance policy to correspond, missing multiple days during Winter Term puts credit for the course in jeopardy. As stated in the Student Handbook: “A student should not have more than two absences during Winter Term.” Please make every effort not to miss a day during Winter Term.
