Adventures Outside the Classroom

Learning By Exploring

While learning in the classroom is highly valued and a top priority, the learning that takes place off campus, or even outside Canada, is just as valuable. Considering new perspectives and new ideas from an alternate frame of reference, be it cultural, historical, artistic or academic, is why students cannot help but learn when they explore. 

Adventures in the recent past have included community service trips to Africa, Senior music trips to Europe and the U.S., athletic trips to the United Kingdom and the U.S., outdoor education and French exposure in Canada, French language immersion in France, and summer courses in Costa Rica, England and Spain.
