Taglit (Discovery)

A Special Winter Term for PJA Middle School Students

Each winter, middle school students and faculty break their routine to participate in Taglit (Discovery). This week-long adventure in experiential learning allows students to spend more time with and dig more deeply into a favorite subject such as art, music, writing or to experience something new - field study oceanography, ghost hunting, or film making. PJA faculty draws on knowledge in their areas of interest, and they may surprise you with their talents! Several visiting faculty bring special expertise to PJA during this week.

Below you will find a link to this year's course descriptions. It promises to be a wonderful week!
