What is experiential learning?
The experiential learning model is a yearly focus of preparation for students as they navigate their high school career. Starting freshmen year, students will attend a career fair in which they are exposed to all different kinds of employers that will allow them to engage in meaningful conversations about the kind of education and experiences they will need for that profession. During sophomore year, students will attend coordinated learning experiences to area employers of a particular profession in which they have an interest. Students will also have an opportunity to visit a post-secondary college or university. During their junior year, students will get involved in dual credit options, job shadowing, and courses that lead towards certification. In their senior year, students will continue in dual credit options and courses that lead towards certification, as well as getting involved in internships and working on capstone projects.
