Fall Project Week
Fall Project Week 2020 has been postponed until the fall of 2021. The uncertainty around the current travel environment in addition to the difficulties maintaining safety and distancing guidelines for all trips made executing Fall Project Week extremely difficult. We look forward to Fall Project Week 2021!
For one week in October, Altamont’s doors swing open and the world becomes our classroom. A staple of the Altamont curriculum since the late ’90s, Project Week allows students to learn through experience. These dynamic journeys range in subject matter and cost so that every student can enjoy unique educational opportunities. Recent trips have included community service in Birmingham, tours of colleges and universities in the Northeast, and trips to the Mississippi Delta, Chicago, Sweden, Rome, Texas, Savannah, Hawaii, Yosemite, San Francisco, France, Washington DC, Disney World, the Grand Canyon and many more!
Mary Hames Scholarship
A scholarship fund, named in honor of former Head of School Martin Hames’ mother, Mary Hames, provides help with expenses for students who might not otherwise be able to travel. Please click here for more information on the Mary Hames Fund and for the application.
