Randolph-Macon Academy conducts a 3-week January term between semesters. J-term courses are seminar-style and experiential learning opportunities for students to earn credit while developing necessary career and life skills. Offerings will include designated time for internship experiences, capstone research projects, or study abroad opportunities for upperclassmen. Each mini-course will be designed as integrated and practical, led by faculty teaching individually or in teams. Students will choose courses that introduce them to topics such as drone and robotics technology, food cultivation and preparation, healthy habits of mind and body, etiquette, photography and music, engineering basics, DIY and tools, entrepreneurship and financial literacy. The J-Term schedule will continue to support important school program rehearsals and sports schedules.
