    Chesapeake Watershed Semester is BACK!

    We are excited to share that CWS will be resuming in the fall of 2021! Gunston’s unique program for 11th, 12th, and new this year, Gap Year Students, The Chesapeake Watershed Semester is an academically rigorous and highly experiential opportunity for students to study the restoration of the Chesapeake Bay through the dual lens of environmental science and public policy.  

    Senior Internship Program 2021

    It is Gunston’s tradition that the seniors have an exciting opportunity to design a meaningful internship program for themselves. In the past students have worked in a myriad of locales including the Smithsonian, government offices, private and public schools, hospitals, state agencies, private businesses, newspaper offices, and radio stations. The Senior Internship Program gives students the chance to explore areas of work that might be of great interest to them.
