Students in the Middle School, in consultation with their parents, choose from a variety of Libertas Selective courses that enhance and enrich the learning environment at Western. These Libertas Selectives provide for a wide range of interests amongst our students, and open up various avenues for greater wonder and exploration. The Libertas Selective courses meet for the entire school year and not on a semester basis. They are broken down into two categories:
- 3 Day Selectives and 2 Day Selectives
3 Day Selectives meet on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays throughout the school year from 1:20 – 2:00pm. 2 Day Selectives meet at the same time on Tuesdays and Thursdays. When signing up for Libertas Selectives, students will be asked to give their first and second choices for both categories. We will make our best effort to accommodate each student with his first choice, but there are limits to the class size per selective. Some selectives are only open to particular grades. If this is the case it will be apparent in the title of the selective. Also, please note that this year there is no formal music requirement, however students are encouraged to take advantage of the music classes offered through the Libertas Selective curriculum.
