Signature Programs

Signature programs provide pathways to interest areas

Bullis currently offers planned courses of study in four signature program areas—Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), Entrepreneurship, Humanities and Global Studies and Visual and Performing Arts. The Signature Program model entails opportunities for interdisciplinary study, experiential education, research-based culminating/capstone experiences and student choice among curricular offerings. Signature programs are available at all grade levels, 2 through 12, to teach institutional and core academic values of the school and afford students an understanding of the personal traits and interpersonal behaviors associated with successful performance in life.

In the Lower School, cross curricular Signature Programs, which are embedded into the core curriculum of reading, writing and math, provide emerging experiences for students.

Middle School embraces an issues-based, modular approach to Signature Programs that provide greater opportunities for student exploration and build readiness for some stand-alone courses in the 8th grade.

Students in the Upper School may opt for rigorous, innovative courses that build on core graduation requirements. The Upper School Program allows students to concentrate on select classes related to a given signature program and deepen their experience in a chosen area. Students participating in signature programs may also engage in a formalized internship program and mentor relationships.
