Pursuits is a program developed to support ASD’s mission to challenge and inspire each student to achieve their dreams and to become a passionate learner prepared to contribute and adapt in a rapidly changing world.
Pursuits provides students with opportunities to pursue their personal interests through an additional 45-minute period during the middle school day. Students have a choice to enroll in various subject areas such as language, art, physical education, science, design, and more. Examples of Pursuits courses include: Historical Film, Airplane Design Challenge, Gardening, Climbing, and French Language Support. Students select a new Pursuits course every 6 weeks to provide the opportunity to explore a variety of activities throughout the school year. Pursuits are guided by ASD faculty.
