How We See The World

Experiential learning through travel is an integral part of the Open School program. Travel provides an excellent learning opportunity in the real world and often proves to be a turning point in a student’s life. The objectives of the travel program include re-discovering the joy of learning, establishing trust in self, others, and the school community, creating ownership of school and one’s actions, and reaffirming self esteem.
Note: Throughout the Open School program trips are required. Required trips include: ELC and IA Advising Trips, Foundations Beginnings Trip, LEAP Trip, Wilderness Trip, and one additional extended trip at both the Foundations and Walkabout level.
