Travel at LFA
Travel at LFA is how we live out our ideal of a “midwestern heart and global mind.” Through mindful travel we seek to embody our school values of character, scholarship, citizenship, and responsibility.
Two types of travel are offered at LFA: Curricular Travel that is linked to an academic class and Co-Curricular Travel, intentional travel grounded in global leadership principles offered through the Stuart Center. Both are reflective of experiential education as defined by the Independent Schools Experiential Education Network’s (ISEEN) definition of What is Experiential Education?.
“Experiential education is a pedagogical process by which educators engage students through a cycle of direct experience, reflection, analysis, and experimentation. Experiential education values personal connection to deep and applied learning and inspires growth in both the student and teacher.”
