Field Experience Learning

Students in Grades 6-8 participate with their teachers in extensions of classroom learning through overnight field experiences. These programs provide real-world opportunities through integrated learning. It is anticipated that all our students will participate in our field experiences at each grade level. (Grade 5 students have a variety of day trip experiences enriching their academic programs.)

Note: There is no school coverage for students not participating in field experiences. Families must make alternative arrangements for their children during these time periods for non-attendees.
