The expeditionary learning model is all about being inspired and impassioned to learn. Students show a much higher level of comprehension and long-term retention when they do things, rather than just see things - with each new experience, our students learn and grow! Regular expeditions, thematic curriculum, and experiential lesson plans help us to cultivate a school-wide culture where students have a love for learning.

Students go on expeditions every month!


"What is an Expeditionary Learning school? A school where you try to find things out for yourself. The teacher doesn't just tell you." SAGE Student
