Semester XVIII: Student Passions and Hopes

Alzar School | 20.01.21

On Saturday, January 23rd, 2021, Alzar School will officially launch Semester Eighteen. A cohort of forty-two students, coming from households across the country, will join ranks as Alzar School young leaders under one common goal: to experience something more out of a high school semester.

We know each student will bring something unique to our community. We have yet to learn all of the characteristics and personalities of the incoming students and how they will coalesce with one another. However, we do know some of the passions and hopes they will bring to the semester.
