Our mission is to develop capable, compassionate leaders for a changing world through experiential education; we integrate rigorous academic content with wellbeing science to create relevant and individualized experiential learning opportunities.
We use wellbeing science to innovate education, and provide youth with meaningful experiential leadership and academic learning opportunities. We cultivate student wellbeing by educating students about their health, environment, social-civic, happiness, skills, academic engagement, safety and security. We foster a supportive environment where we learn from our mistakes and successes in order to develop confidence in our authentic selves. We encourage students, staff, and parents to learn together in a symbiotic relationship while sharing the responsibility of leadership.

"PELA is for students who are self- motivated and disciplined. It is not as easy as you would think, but if you challenge yourself and choose to push your boundaries, you will benefit immensely and forever." - Current Student
