Experiential Learning / Trips

You are here

Where in the world . . . ?

See the many places we visited on our extended learning adventures in 2016–17.

Hands-on, project-based learning in classrooms and labs; day and overnight field trips in and around St. Louis; and weeklong outdoor expeditions (Upper School) and curricular trips (Middle School and Grade 5) deepen students’ understanding and uncover new interests and talents.

Such experiential study develops competencies crucial to success in the twenty-first century—scientific inquiry, communication, documentation, presentation, teamwork, reflection, and collaborative leadership. Each year, optional service and study trips for Upper School students also enrich the learning.

(And the good news? These opportunities are integral to our curriculum and made available to enrolled students at no additional fee!)
