Forge operates on a year-round learning calendar. We have a total of 190 days of learning with breaks and holidays immersed throughout the year.
We start our year in July with our two-week Summer Institute. This is time spent team building and gaining understanding and fluency in a core set of constructs; photography, navigation, sketching/drawing, and practices in self-awareness. We then break and come back together in mid-August to commence our year.
We operate in 45-day learning cycles followed by 2-week breaks intended for restoration and relaxation. Each integrated learning activity begins with the student body building background knowledge and conducting fieldwork. After this first cycle, we take a short break and commence our individual Project Paths that connect and integrate on the broader theme. Like scaffolding, learning experiences build upon one another unlocking greater strengths, passion, and mastery.
