What Is Experiential Education?

Experiential education actively engages students in the learning process. Whether role-playing in class, building a robot, traveling to other countries or cleaning up the sea shore, Athenian’s programs ensure students have both direct experience and focused reflection. Our various programs and teaching methods are purposefully designed to enhance curiosity, critical thinking and creativity.
 
Hands-on experimentation, real-life experiences, first-hand observation, and learning through discovery develop a more rich and meaningful understanding. In addition to classroom activities, Athenian offers a variety of other programs, including athletics, the Athenian Wilderness Experience, Focus Days, robotics, performing arts, community service, exchange programs, international and domestic travel, and Interim experiences.
