We believe learning outside the classroom is an enriching experience that inspires personal growth and connections to the world and others around us.

Opportunities are woven throughout the year for students to take advantage of our beautiful campus. For example:

  • Science classes, including studying prairie and pond ecosystems
  • Art classes
  • Physical Education classes, including canoeing and kayaking in grades 6 and 7
  • Extracurriculars, including biking club
  • Field Day and Community Day traditions
  • Harvesting the school’s vegetable garden

Each year students leave their classrooms behind to learn from experience. Here are some of our 2022-2023 adventures:
