Immersives are Branson's newest addition to the academic year. Launched in the spring of 2022, this is a two-week end-of-year program for students in every grade to explore a specific field of study in cross-disciplinary courses co-taught by faculty and staff members. In 2023, students and faculty/staff participated in 30 courses.
Immersives serve as an exploration for students, an incubator of ideas for teachers, an opportunity to bring new people and grades together, and a culminating community-wide academic celebration at the end of each year.
One of the 2023 course offerings was a "Be a Content Creator" immersive where 12 students reported on and documented some of the new courses in the immersive program. Their work is displayed below.
