Outdoor & Travel
The mission of the Seattle Academy Outdoor & Travel Program is to promote trips that can lead to significant growth for the individual - growth that often comes when one is challenged in an unfamiliar environment that requires discomfort and hard work. The program seeks to provide opportunities for students to deepen relationships with other members of the community and develop a responsible understanding about cultures, people, and lands through which they travel. Our trip program incorporates outdoor/wilderness travel, cultural immersion, language immersion, and service.
The success of our trips program is not just measured by what happens on the trip, but by what is seen upon return: in the hallways and classrooms, in conversations between students and faculty, in the growth and new perspectives students find both within themselves and the world around them.
