A Day in the Life of Upper Campus Students

The core of our programming is Project Based Learning with a variety of projects: Teacher-Led, Student-Led and Community-Led.

With the pandemic came virtual schooling. We look forward to being able to meet on campus once again, but until that day comes, we have worked diligently to structure each student’s virtual school day so they have a balance of Synchronous and Asynchronous learning opportunities. We start each day with either an Independent or  Active Start option. Students can choose from a variety of virtual fitness options, or use this time to independently work on their projects. We then have virtual class time for students to connect with other students, staff and community members. Wednesdays are an independent learning day for students with a morning check-in (Advisory).
