Bullis Signature Programs
Bullis offers Signature Programs in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math), Entrepreneurship, and Visual & Performing Arts.
Complementing our rigorous core academics, Bullis Signature Programs offer students unique opportunities for interdisciplinary study, experiential education, faculty mentoring, and research-based and creative Capstone experiences.
The programs, each with a dedicated director, demonstrate the connectedness between education in the classroom and daily life. Faculty mentors encourage students to dream big, take risks, and think deeply. Students develop confidence, as well as presentation and leadership skills, which fully prepare them for experiences in college and beyond.
- In Lower School, exposure to the programs weaves seamlessly through the grades with emphasis on providing experiential hands-on learning opportunities.
- In Middle School, students continue to explore the programs through coursework, field trips, club time, and majors and minors. Majors allow 8th grade students to dive deep into an area of interest while minors provide students with an opportunity to explore a new area of interest or one to which they have had minimal exposure.
- Signature Programs continue to build through the Upper School. By 10th grade, students can choose from a wide array of electives and specific foundational courses to prepare them for the Honors Capstone experience. These foundational courses include STEM Research: Design and Methods; Business Model Design; and Entrepreneurial Finance. The culminating experience, the Honors Senior Capstone class, allows interested students time and space to design and pursue a unique project in a guided, year-long course of study.
