KEEC Mission:

Our Philosphy

Our educational values are rooted in the concept of community, drawing from the natural world in which we live and study. We offer hands-on, experiential learning through a variety of teaching styles in a variety of natural habitats that serve as our outdoor classroom. Our goal for students is to gain a better understanding of their role in communities, both human and non-human. Students will do this through a discovery approach using all five senses and exploring with mind and body. It is our belief that with a better understanding of the natural world, students will begin to make personal and daily decisions according to those practices that will benefit all communities, not just the human community.

Our Objectives    

~ gain a better understanding of communities, both human and non-human
~ improve their critical thinking and problem solving skills
~ expand their awareness of how their actions affect the world around them
~ develop a heightened sense of responsibility toward all communities
~ have a safe, fun week outdoors

We will accomplish these objectives through a multi-disciplinary approach to teaching by addressing a variety of learning styles. We strive to accentuate, expand and utilize skills and concepts taught in the school classroom.
