estern Reserve Academy’s Saturday Academy program has changed the way faculty and students look at Saturdays. Now in its fourth year, Saturday Academy is an innovative and creative seminar and module based program that supports the transformational experience of a WRA education. Academic ECHO modules and year-long class seminars are designed to extend, enrich and support student learning in a way that would not be possible in the Monday through Friday schedule. “This is a reaffirmation of the goals and characteristics

we have tested and valued at WRA for generations,” said Head of School Christopher Burner ’80. “As a residential school, we have always held classes on Saturday and we are recommitting the entire school – faculty, staff and students – to meaningful learning experiences on Saturday that also allow flexibility to meet the many other activities scheduled.” Students enroll in two ECHO modules each academic year, during a six-week trimester that aligns with the fall, winter and spring athletic seasons. Students have numerous courses to choose from (see reverse side), allowing them to discover a new passion or pursue an area of academic interest in depth. The offerings are diverse, reflecting the broad interests and expertise of WRA’s talented faculty. In addition to the ECHO modules, Class Seminars are organized by class and meet seven times a year. They are tailored to the needs of students at different levels of academic, social and personal development. Programs include health, leadership training and college counseling. Seminars take place on Saturdays when ECHO module meetings do not take place.

ECHO Module Catalog 2015-16 ECHO modules are designed to extend, enrich and support student learning. The modules provide students with the opportunity to discover a new academic passion or to pursue an area of academic aptitude in depth. The following courses are available:
