Our Program

Learn, Grow, and Experience the Outdoors

American Outdoor Schools' curriculum is designed to reinforce science concepts learned at school through experiential education since studying the natural environment cannot always occur within the classroom setting. 

Students are provided with a working manual, which is their tool for learning, to apply the concepts that they have been taught by collecting specimens, conducting experiments and recording observations.  The curriculum is designed for grades five through six, utilizing observation, classification, investigation and analytical skills.
