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 take charge of their education, 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.
