Bullis Signature Programs

Bullis offers Signature Programs in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math), Entrepreneurship, and Visual & Performing Arts.

STEM at Bullis
Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math (STEM)
STEM at Bullis is more than Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. It’s an approach we use to answer questions, discover how things work, and create solutions to problems. This process begins in Kindergarten and continues through Senior year.
Entrepreneurship at Bullis
Within the Bullis Entrepreneurship Signature Program students are exposed to the world of Entrepreneurship and the ideas that drive it. Across all three divisions, student curiosity helps steer the entrepreneurship curriculum. As authentic questions emerge, we investigate them.
Visual & Performing Arts
Visual & Performing Arts
Through theater, dance, visual arts, and music Bullis gives visual and performing arts students the opportunity to learn, grow, experiment, and hone their skills in a setting that supports self-expression, discovery, and reflection through the creative process.

Complementing our rigorous core academics, Bullis Signature Programs offer students unique opportunities for interdisciplinary study, experiential education, faculty mentoring, and research-based and creative Capstone experiences.

In each, Bullis provides opportunities for interdisciplinary study, student choice, experiential education, and research-based or creative capstone experiences.

  • Signature Programs begin to weave through the Lower School experience. Student exposure to the programs broadens and expands each year with increasing opportunities for independence, research, and discovery.
  • In Middle School, students expand and continue exploration— a freedom unique to Bullis and its Signature Programs.
  • Signature Programs continue to build through Upper School. By Sophomore year, a student can choose electives. These classes enable students to prepare the foundation for a Signature Program honors capstone experience, if they so choose.

Senior Capstone

Senior capstone students design and pursue a unique project in close collaboration with a mentor and with the structure and pacing of a year-long class. A capstone allows students to go beyond the curriculum with an intensive, meaningful project of their own design. Seniors present the results of their deep explorations to the community in April at the Signature Programs Symposium.
