Week Without Walls program (WWW) provides exciting opportunities for NOVA students to explore the world through project based learning and build meaningful relationships with each other. Through project based learning, students engage in an extended learning process that uses inquiry and challenge to stimulate the growth and mastery of skills. PBL teaches doing as well as knowing. As students acquire knowledge, they also apply what they learn to solve authentic problems. It is required for all students in grades 9, 10 and 11.

In line with our school mission,

Seek Self and Others
In Heart and Mind
Unafraid of the Possibilities

Each week without walls experience is designed so that students will:

1.      Gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging and complex question, problem, or challenge;

2.      Start with questions, not curriculum. Students will engage in an extended process of asking questions in a real-world context that speaks to their personal concerns and interests.

3.      Reflect on their learning, quality of their work, obstacles and how to overcome them.

4.      Become closer and supportive of one another as they make new friends and live our mission.
