Student Leila Lopez Marks diligently practicing her golf swing at home during 2021 Post Oak J-Term.
A couple months ago, I did an article about Post Oak’s 2021 J-Term, a two-week period in which the students of Post Oak got to take a break from academics and do a deep dive into something non-academic that interests them. There were a vast amount of choices, including everything from golf to yoga to personal finance. This is a time that is considered one of the most memorable times of the school year, along with A-Term and a few other schoolwide events.
Now that spring is almost upon us, it’s nearly time once again for the also annual Post Oak A-Term. Like J-Term, it’s a two-week intensive course that gives students a chance to explore something new and gives us a break from our usual school subjects. This year, many of the courses available during J-Term will be available once again for A-Term. Student favorites like golf and musical theater will be available along with a few new courses such as martial arts and PCB circuit board building.
There is one change being made to A-Term this year. Because the A-Term days are scheduled right next to extended weekend for Good Friday, A-Term will be two days shorter than usual.
In the past, students have also had the opportunity to travel locally and internationally for their J and/or A-Term. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this isn’t possible quite yet. That being said, there are many COVID-friendly A-Term course options that are beloved alternatives to travelling abroad. I am sure this year’s A-Term will be no exception, and that it will be an enjoyable and successful experience for all.
