Intensives & Electives


Intensives occur two times per year for seven days each. Regular studies are set aside during this time frame and students and teachers have the opportunity to explore a favorite topic in great depth all day, every day, for the time period.


For not being a large high school, Venture offers an impressive array of elective offerings that give students the opportunity to pursue their interests.  They also provide teachers with opportunities to teach courses in which they have a particular interest.  Teachers often make use of local resources including nature, experts, and fieldwork.
