  • Directing or co-directing two or three terms of a co-curricular activity (for example, a sporting or artistic activity, community service, the newspaper, the yearbook or any other activity arranged with the headmaster or the dean of students). Activities can be “major” ones meeting three times a week or “minor” ones meeting one time a week
  • Attending the Teaching Fellow Seminar led by the dean of the faculty
  • Attending Arabic classes offered through Global Online Academy (GOA) or on campus
  • Attending certain programmatic school events such as Parents Weekend, Orientation Week, Commencement, test preparation, etc. whether these are held during the week or on weekends
