Mastery Learning Program

The Mastery Learning Program is open to Upper School students and is designed to provide an opportunity to explore a topic or execute a project that falls outside the boundaries of typical high school courses. Past projects include: a children’s book written in French, construction of a working replica of the Marconi wireless transmitter, construction of a Dobson telescope, a research project on why people do or don’t vote, design and production of high fashion clothing, and an aerial survey of Cape Cod’s coastline compared to fifty years ago. Each student accepted into the program works under the guidance of one or two faculty members and meets regularly with them.
