Experiential Learning

The Sterne School Experiential Learning program grants students the opportunity to learn by engaging in hands-on activities and tasks outside of the usual classroom setting.

Sterne's Experiential Week gives all Sterne students the opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge they have gained in the classroom to the outside world: testing their physics acumen at the Exploratorium; taking Mind-Body Period to new heights in a yoga-surf practicum; seeing U.S. history live and up-close in our nation's capital; putting ecology into practice on a turtle reserve in the Sea of Cortez – to name only a few. Each experience is carefully crafted, taking into account cross-curricular educational outcomes as well as the confidence-building, community service, and social-emotional growth that form the program's core.

Experiential Week promises to provide a one-of-kind, hands-on educational experience every year.
