The 大的构建 is a beloved interdivisional project that takes place every spring. This project was created by alumn Miles Burton ’17 who spent four summers working with the 修补学校 where he brought hands-on design learning to kids of all ages. 

在五月期间, a dedicated group of Head-Royce Seniors leads full-day design-build challenges for our 较低的学校ers. 每一类第二, 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders has a day dedicated to them, where they journey with their Senior guides across the street to 南校区 to learn the use of power 工具 and then build something big and exciting. This hands-on project offers our 较低的学校ers the chance to use machines and hand-skills while collaboratively solving a complex design challenge.

As a founding member of the 全球在线学院 (GOA), Head-Royce has offered interdisciplinary online courses to 上学校 students since 2011. Students who enroll in GOA classes collaborate with peers from a range of independent schools, from Catlin Gabel and Dalton to the American School in Japan and King’s Academy in Jordan.

GOA allows us to expand the 上学校 course catalog to include the languages Arabic and Japanese, and more specialized classes like Architecture, 生物伦理学, 和积极心理学. Many classes are interdisciplinary, 比如全球健康, 全球背景下的9/11, and Prisons and Criminal Law. The courses are all taught by faculty affiliated with member schools, and independent schools with similar academic standards as Head-Royce, and each course is capped at 18 students.

GOA’s annual Catalyst Conference is a public, online exhibition of student research, focused on social justice and advocacy. In 2020, the 上学校 History Department adopted the Catalyst Conference as a capstone experience for their 10th grade United States History research project.
