Why does EBIA have Intersession?

  • To support students in engaging with their broader Oakland community

  • College and career readiness

Intersession occurs three times a year (Fall, Winter, and Spring) for 1 week at a time and is designed as an opportunity for students to engage in different enrichment and hands-on learning with partner organizations while teachers are in professional development.
