Each year, during the month of May, all Crefeld students participate in a week-long Spring Minicourse of their choosing. Choices include local and out-of-state courses, some of which require overnight stays. These courses are designed to build community and to foster success in a setting outside of school, through experiential learning.

Examples of past Spring Minicourses include:

  • Cooking at The Viking Culinary School
  • West Virginia Adventures
  • Glass Casting Intensive
  • California Redwoods Leadership Trip
  • Roots of American Music: Nashville and Memphis
  • Colonial Williamsburg and Washington, D.C.
  • Hiking the Appalachian Trail
  • Circus School
  • French Canada
  • Havasu Canyon
  • Wallop’s Island
  • Philly Sports
