Welcome to the Experiential Leadership Academy
"Experiential learning occurs when carefully chosen experiences are supported by reflection, critical analysis and synthesis" (The Association for Experiential Education).
Students who thrive at the Academy are eager to travel, be outdoors, help others, learn by doing, and engage in personal growth.
In your application, please share your passions and interests. Our goal is to facilitate meaningful educational experiences that encourage students to thrive.
The Paonia Experiential Leadership Academy admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.

“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.”
