Outdoor Education Program – Purpose
The Outdoor Education at ACS is an extension of the school program; it offers chances for students to learn about and appreciate their environment. Outdoor Education allows students to acquire skills with which they enjoy a lifetime of creative, productive, and healthful living.
At ACS, we firmly believe that Outdoor Education is an essential component of individual, mental, and physical development, and that outdoor trips will benefit all students with never-ending experiences. One of the most important components of an outdoor environment is that it is filled with first-time memorable learning experiences. It merges activity with learning and emphasis on hands-on field work.
