Signature Programs Provide Pathways to Interest Areas


Bullis 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 provides opportunities for interdisciplinary study, experiential education, research-based culminating/capstone experiences and student choice among curricular offerings.

From dreaming to conceiving, students learn that big, crazy ideas can often lead to game-changing advances to tackle world problems. Or, they discover that exploring art and technology can yield results that make people think, smile and applaud.

Students in all grades delve into each of the program areas in age-appropriate activities to learn, experiment and gain appreciation. Experiences broaden and expand through the grades.

The Entrepreneurship Signature program has provided me with the skills to impact the lives of others and I look forward to doing so.” Alec S. ’17

In the Lower School, students get hands-on and up-close with activities like the annual Entrepreneur Fair, arts performances and classes, and designated time for coding, robotics and engineering.

Middle School embraces an issues-based, modular approach to Signature Programs. Interdisciplinary project-based learning activities address a big topic, like protecting the Chesapeake Bay or building space colonies. Students attend STEM workshops and participate in financial literacy classes, and 8th graders enjoy selecting major and minor activities for more time to explore specialized subjects.

Students in Upper School may take classes in a wide variety of programs or elect to enroll in a Signature Program track of courses. Year-long capstone projects in the senior year deepen the experience and stretch the imagination via independent projects, research and experimentation in student-driven topics.

A base for most of the Signature Program courses and activity is the new Gerald L. Boarman Discovery Center, replete with state-of-the-art facilities for making, convening, collaborating and creating.
