At Delmarva Christian High School, the annual J-Term with its vast array of course offerings is an integral part of the school’s Program of Study. Every January opportunities are provided to students in grades 9 through 12 enabling them to pursue passions while seeking and discerning God’s call on their lives. Although some adjustments had to be made this year due to COVID state mandates, Delmarva Christian students were still able to continue the tradition through in-person internship experiences and enriching academic activities.
Courses offered included Beginner Sewing Circle; Broadcasting—Set-up and Live Streaming; Business Internships; College Explorations; Competition For Life; Experiencing Culture Through Movies and Music; Experiencing the History and Entertainment of Gaming; Influencers: Girlfriends, Social Media, Beauty, and Jesus; Introduction to Film; Physics and Metaphysics of Star Wars; Survival Skills; The Art of Disney; and The Art of Short Story Writing.
CAPTION (Photo Above): High school students enrolled in the Beginner Sewing Circle began by learning basic sewing machine operations (of old and new) and then transitioned to sewing ¼” seam allowances, using rotary cutters, reading patterns, and learning how to properly measure. When all was said and done, the students made standard-sized pillowcases and, working together, a beautiful quilt that will be donated to someone special battling cancer.
