Holy Names' Midsession offers enriching,
When students return to Holy Names High School in Oakland from Christmas break, they don't start their second semester. Instead, they participate in a long-standing tradition: Midsession.
Midsession affords HNHS students the chance to explore enriching learning experiences different from their daily classes, allowing students the opportunity to try something new that they might not have been able to pursue otherwise. This unique program is in line with the HNHS philosophy that intellectual development of students involves the whole person and reaches beyond the confines of a formal curriculum. The topics covered during Midsession benefit students by giving them the opportunity to explore new and different subjects. Midsession also gives HNHS faculty and staff the opportunity to delve deeper into areas of expertise.
