So What is Experiential Education at CCS anyway?
Experiential education at CCS is a process of teaching and learning which engages students through thoughtfully designed direct experience and focused reflection. Experiential education allows students to explore and discover, engaging them intellectually, emotionally, socially, soulfully, and or physically. Students learn to take initiative, make choices, challenge their personal limitations, and be accountable in a way that inspires their sense of wonder, desire to learn, and to contribute to their community. The educator recognizes and encourages spontaneous opportunities for learning by setting suitable experiences, posing problems, setting boundaries, and facilitating the learning process within the framework of the state standards, mission statement, and ends policies.
