What is an intersession?

  • An intersession is a short period between academic terms used by students to engage in projects outside the normal academic program. KQPS will have three (3) intersessions this summer where teachers will share their "Passion" Projects.

What are these "Passion" Projects?

  • Passion Projects are projects that inspire you; projects that push you to explore your inner creativity and personality. They are fun, educational, and different from the normal school curriculum!
