One way Gann students learn outside of the classroom is Exploration Week, a week dedicated to seeking out new cultures, new adventures and, in some cases, visiting different parts of the country. Students challenge themselves in new ways by participating in intensive community service projects, developing firsthand skills and knowledge, or simply taking a chance to try something out of their comfort zone.
Senior Capstone Project
In addition to Exploration Week, seniors at Gann participate in a capstone experience known as Ma’avar. Ma’avar offers graduating students a framework to transition from high school to their early adult lives and allows them the freedom to spend time engaging in directed study projects or exploring their fields of professional interest through participation in guided internships. Previous projects include interning at Akamai Technologies, Boston Children's Hospital, and the New England Aquarium, learning how to play guitar, building a quad copter and go kart, and writing a novella, just to name a few.
