Experiential Learning

Ecoliteracy '15
  • Experiential learning is an integral part of Echo Horizon's curriculum. It activates the senses and more regions of the brain. It nurtures joyful and engaged students who look at how they connect to the world and how the world connects to them.

     

    Through best practices in hands on learning, curated field trips, team-building retreats and partnerships with programs such as Growing Great Gardens and Facing History and Ourselves, our students gain the skills to make a difference in their school and the community at large, long after they graduate.

     

    Echo Horizon students have fun making mistakes, learning and growing together in a variety of meaningful ways. Our experiential learning environment provides a safe place where students take ownership of learning and ultimately become stewards of the causes they care about with the support of the faculty and staff.
