Beyond the Classroom aims to strengthen middle-school aged students' leadership capabilities by providing them with a variety of "out-of-the-box" experiences that take advantage of our state-of-the-art facilities and talented Nightingale-Bamford School faculty. From the intellectual and innovative to the artistic and creative, these experiences are intended to expand students' learning beyond what is covered during the regular school year, leading them to develop and expand new skills and passions in leadership growth and development. Our mission is to create an engaging, exciting, and collaborative environment that will inspire students to discover new interests and take on new challenges.

Beyond the Classroom is offering two week-long sessions during the weeks of June 10 and June 17, 2019. Students will take one course per session and may enroll for one or both sessions. Courses will run weekdays from 9:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.

With the exception of Debate Institute, which is co-ed, Beyond the Classroom courses are specifically geared toward girls.
