Community School students climb mountains and cliffs, run river rapids, explore wild coasts and deserts, and overnight in snow shelters. Through these adventures with a purpose, students develop the confidence to take risks and overcome challenges and adversity. By stepping outside their comfort zone, students build confidence and grow in ways impossible in traditional classroom settings. Outdoor trips also encourage environmental ethics that enrich student lives and the lives of others.
Community School believes unequivocally that the Outdoor Program promotes not only academic success but helps students develop insights about themselves and the world that will serve them well on their journey to adulthood.
Embrace the adventure!
