The spirit of courage and adventure that permeates the EL Education model is a clear expression of the model’s roots in Outward Bound. We encourage students to work on building their courage across multiple aspects of their academic and social lives, to develop, for example, “fractions courage,” “poetry courage,” or “friendship courage.” Similarly, adventure can be any physical or academic experience that involves risk, challenge, and discovery. Adventure bolsters student engagement and strengthens students’ courage.

EL Education promotes the kinds of adventures that create opportunities for leadership and collaboration as groups of students and teachers face challenges both alone and together. Reflection is a vital component of such adventures, so that each experience is a rich opportunity for learning about oneself, one’s peers, and the world. Teachers take care when planning adventures to ensure physical and emotional safety as they promote risk taking and courageous action.
