Explorers are encouraged to take control of their education, work on difficult real-world quests, challenge themselves, and think more deeply about today's relevant problems.
GOAL OF EXPLORATION
The Exploration studio years are the perfect time to develop intellect and character while gaining a deeper sense of self and the real world. Exploration learners have a broad range of topics to study and pair in-depth exploration with real world connections to experts and local apprenticeships. Exploration years are all about belonging and serving a purpose. In Exploration the focus is on inspiring learners to develop a sense of personal accountability, a deepening of their passions for individual subjects while broadening their understanding of themselves and their future.
Just like in Discovery, we approach academics in Exploration not as siloed subjects but as a fully interdisciplinary experience. This allows learners to draw meaning, purpose, and relevancy into all that they do. Building on the foundations of Discovery Studio, learners in the Exploration Studio continue to demonstrate core-skill mastery, independence, critical thinking, creativity, and innovative problem-solving abilities through authentic real-world experiences.
LIFE IN EXPLORATION
The Exploration Studio is an opportunity to create an environment that helps learners understand who they really are and who they want to be - this is the time when learners build upon their self-awareness and leadership. Throughout the years in Exploration, there is continuous reinforcement and appreciation for their value and contribution to our school community through authenticity,
