EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING PROGRAM

Dalton Academy’s Experiential Learning Program seeks to bridge the learning that is happening inside Dalton's walls to the outside world. By utilizing the unique passions, talents, and knowledge of our community members, we strive to take learning to deeper and more meaningful depths, providing students with opportunities to demonstrate a deep understanding of themselves and the world that surrounds us. 

 

Experiential learning projects take place every Fall and Spring.

DISCOVER, CREATE,  REFLECT & APPLY

CREDIT FULFILLMENT

Experiential learning is a cornerstone of the Dalton curricular program which requires the following of students:
